The pipers are calling

February 15, 2020

The bands are coming to Scots Day Out 2020 - pipes playing, drums beating and kilts swirling their way down View Street in the opening parade on Saturday 29 February.

And then in Rosalind Park, the bands will be in competition from 11am on the Band Arena before the stunning and spectacular massed bands at 4.30pm to close Bendigo's special day of Scottish celebration.

There are 18 bands for SDO this year from across Victoria and also NSW. For many, Scots Day Out is part of preparation for the Pipe Bands Australian Diamond Jubilee Year Australian Pipe Band Championships in Maryborough on 4 and 5 April.

Here are the bands to come along and cheer, follow their journey to the championships and marvel at their music.
