Piping & Drumming contest presented and organized by the Northern Branch.
Due to the current concerns surrounding the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), and following the recommendations of local public health departments, the East Bay Scottish Association and the East Bay Regional Parks District have made the tough decision to cancel this year’s Tartan Day event.
Thank you to the piping & drumming competitors who entered this year’s solo contest, for your interest and for supporting this Northern Branch event. You will receive a refund of your competition entry fees, which should be refunded to the original payment method. Please allow up to one week to receive your refund.
