A Tartan Day Celebration is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at Boothbay Railway Village, 586 Wiscasset Road in Boothbay.

The celebration is a collaboration between Boothbay Railway Village and Saint Andrews Society of Maine. The Brunswick Scottish Country Dancers will demonstrate Scottish dance and invite the public to join in, harps and bagpipes will be played, and Scottish textile arts will be demonstrated.

National Tartan Day commemorates the Scottish Declaration of Independence, on which the American Declaration of Independence was modeled, and recognizes achievements of Americans of Scottish descent.

Admission is free, a suggested $5 donation will benefit the two non-profit organizations.
