The Scottish American Society of South Florida, Inc. [SASSF] is a non-profit organization dedicated to the furtherance of Scottish culture through Scottish dance, music and art. Run entirely by a team of volunteers, our signature event is the Southeast Florida Scottish Festival and Games held on the 1st Saturday in March at Plantation Heritage Park. A portion of the funds raised by the Festival and other SASSF events are used to award scholarships for instruction in Scottish music, language, Highland Dancing, as well as academic pursuits.
MeetingsSASSF Board Meetings have historically been held monthly at the Plantation Presbyterian Church, 901 NW 70th Av, Plantation, FL. The Board and Festival Planning Committees have been meeting viz Zoom since March 2020. We do hope to be able to go back to in-person meetings sometime in the near future. In any case, Members, as well as guests, are encouraged to attend and become involved in planning for the annual Scottish Festival & Games. The monthly meeting schedule is posted on the website, the Society's Facebook page, and distributed via our email list. The Annual General Meeting occurs in May, during which the Board members are elected for the coming year.
