About the Kilt Skate
In January 2015, Montreal’s St Andrew’s Society joined with other Scottish societies in Ottawa, Saskatoon, Calgary and Winnipeg and held the Sir John A. Great Canadian Kilt Skate. We invited everyone to come to the Skating Rink at the Vieux-Port de Montreal in kilt, tartan or other Scottish gear and skate! Many came and enjoyed the whirl of the pipes and joy of skating on great ice. Since then it has become an annual event.
2019 Kilt Skate
The 5th Annual Great Canadian Kilt Skate took place on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the Natrel Skating Rink in the Old Port of Montreal. Thanks to the generous support of the Scottish government, tartan-clad skaters were able to skate for free and enjoy hot chocolate and a slice of delicious cake.
