This year marks Bruce County’s 150th anniversary. To commemorate this special year, the Bruce 150 Committee has planned exciting events throughout the year.

April 6th marks Tartan Day: a celebration of Scottish heritage and the date on which a declaration of Scottish Independence was signed in 1320. Bruce County’s ancestry has strong roots to Scotland; Bruce County even has its very own tartan.

This Tartan Day, April 7, 2017, the Bruce 150 Committee invites all residents to sport their tartan for a chance to win a Bruce 150 prize package.

Tartans from all clans are welcome and the prize includes a Bruce 150th T-shirt, water bottle, ball cap, and a Bruce County Illustrated History with artwork by Ken Thornburn.

To enter, simply share photos of you, sporting anything tartan, on the Bruce 150 Facebook page  by April 6th.

The winner will be selected on April 7th.
