Tanya Watson, executive director of the Buffalo Area Chamber of Commerce, is now taking clan applications for the 17th annual Southwest Missouri Celtic Heritage Festival and Highland Games. The festivities will take place Sept. 6-7 at Buffalo City Park by the Buffalo City Pool. 

Festival attendees can enjoy the Calling of the Clans ceremony. There will be food and vendors, a clan parade, musicians and clan tents.

Clan registration is due by Sept. 1, and the cost is $15 for clan tent space. Email Watson at buffalochamber@gmail.com to get an application. Mail the form and payment to Buffalo Area Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 258, Buffalo, MO 65622.

The chamber asks that the public place this event on their calendars now. Anyone who would want to volunteer for gate work should contact the chamber office, (417) 345-2852.
