Caledonian Ball

The first Caledonian Ball was held in 1848, when the 6th Duke of Atholl gave a ball in London to raise funds for Scottish charities. Since then the Caledonian Ball has become an annual event.
In Argentina the first Caledonian Ball was held in 1924, as a gala Scottish party for adults at which the custom of Scottish Country dancing was introduced. During this event, the Scottish Country Dance competition takes place and Bronze, Silver and Gold medals are awarded to the winning eightsomes. The SASRP Pipe Band puts on shows for everyone to enjoy.
