Village of Caledonia Bicentennial

Celebrating 200 Years of the Scots!

The 4th Annual Caledonia Vintage Market & Antique Show and Celebrating Caledonia’s 200th Anniversary in full Scottish Heritage Style

Founded in May 1819 by Scotsman Alexander Craighead, Caledonia will offer a taste of Scottish heritage; starting with a Scottish themed parade down Main Street at 9AM, led by the local Veterans and members of the Scottish-American Military Society with bagpipes; the day will feature Scottish Clan tents, a traditional Calling of the Clans event, the Claddagh Dancers, Scottish vendors with merchandise straight from Scotland and demonstrations explaining tartan history and Scottish terminology. The Scottish St. Andrew Society will have an informational booth; The Village will recognize the representatives of the founding families of the village and will be honored to have H.M. Honorary Consul to Missouri for the United Kingdom Mark Sutherland. Mr. Sutherland was born in Scotland and represents the U.K. here in the states.

The bicentennial was such as wonderful time! We marched in the parade, met some new people, and became part of the history of Caledonia Missouri. Thank you to everyone who joined us and be sure to check back later for pictures!
