Clan & Society Registration Application

18th Annual Prescott Highland Games & Celtic Faire 

September 28th & 29th, 2024

Dating back as far as the 12th century, the Scottish clans were originally created as extensions of families– particularly to show who had loyalties to a particular chief. It is a common misconception that every person who bears a clan’s name is a lineal descendant of the Chiefs. Many clansmen although not related to the Chief took the Chief’s surname as their own to either show solidarity, or to obtain basic protection or for much needed sustenance. Interestingly enough, the actual word ‘clan’ comes from a Gaelic term, ‘clann’, which literally translates to “children”. The Scottish clan system served as the primary political system, until 1746, particularly the Battle of Culloden, which brought on the crushing of the Jacobite rebellion, by the royal troops of King George II.

Today, we celebrate the traditions of the clans, and our clan row allows you to learn about different clans’ history, connect with your own ancestry, or just meet some great new friends! Our clan representatives are very knowledgeable, passionate people who would love to have a visit from you!
