During the week of August 14 – 18, 2018, the Maine Ulster Scots Project will be hosting a conference at Bowdoin College in Brunswick to celebrate 300 years of Scots-Irish growth and influence in the local area: Three Centuries of “Scotch-Irish” Heritage. This celebration will be capped off by the Highland Games at the Topsham Fairgrounds on Aug 18. We are anticipating between 150 and 200 registrations for the event from outside the area, including approximately 30 from Northern Ireland, and we want to encourage people to come early and stay late to visit the area.
