Notes: You are welcome at all events listed above, and the bands and musicians appreciate your support. Gatherings (a fair) and concerts are specifically intended for public enjoyment. Most gatherings include food and craft stalls. Certain gatherings and concerts may be subject to entrance fees. Regional gatherings are normally attended by local pipe bands. Championship gatherings are attended by all competing bands in SA. Solo competitions listed above are intended primarily for the enjoyment of bandsmen, though interested public spectators are welcome to attend. Many include beverage stalls, but most do not include food and craft stalls. We will try to include more specific details for each event during the weeks leading up to each event.

Anyone hiring the band may also request for their event to be added to this page, provided it is of public interest.
