Clann Tartan
Colonel Gaffney’s Regiment is a unit of Scottish mercenaries and their camp followers from the year 1630. The Regiment portrays part of the 20 to 30 thousand Scots who served Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, in the 30 years War. The Regiment is portrayed by Clann Tartan, a nonprofit corporation whose purpose is to teach the history of Scotland from the invention of the kilt in the late 1500’s, to its being outlawed by the English after the Rebellion of 1745.

Clann Tartan appears at events throughout the year ranging from schools, to black powder rendezvous, to being featured visitors at historic sites. The Regiment portrays Scotland before the cultural devastation that followed the final defeat by the English, and at a time when huge numbers of men (up to 5% of Scotland’s population) left to fight in Europe’s last great war of religion. Visitors are encouraged to attend the scheduled military drills and other demonstrations or to interact with the Regiment!

Viking Encampment
The Viking Encampment consists of characters dedicated to re-enacting the history of the Scandinavian people around 1100 AD. We are currently based at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, located in Shakopee, MN.

We feature weapons demonstrations, crafting and cultural demonstrations, songs and sagas as well as Viking games like Kuub. Our camp is located near the water mill not far from Kings Gate.

Dakota Curling Club
Dakota Curling was founded in 2006, primarily in response to the growing interest in curling generated by coverage in the Olympics.

While Dakota Curling has many seasoned and talented members, we are also especially well-known for our welcoming and supportive attitude toward new curlers. Many club members are certified curling instructors and we have a strong and well developed program for teaching people how to curl.

Weavers Guild of Minnesota
Since its founding in 1940, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota (WGM) has established itself as a nationally-recognized resource for the arts of weaving, spinning, and dyeing. Membership has grown from the original twenty-six members, including famed weaver Hilma Berglund, to more than 600 members in 2019.

The Guild serves nearly 700 new and experienced fiber artists each year through classes and events. WGM offers beginning classes in weaving (floor loom, rigid heddle, and off-loom techniques), and in spinning (wheel, drop spindle, e-spinner) along with a variety of intermediate and advanced classes and workshops. Member events include meetings and lectures, self-study interest groups, exhibition opportunities, and the annual guild sale.

WGM was the catalyst in the formation of the Textile Center, where the Guild currently maintains classroom, retail, and library space. WGM’s on-site shop, Fiber Source, sells new and donated yarn, books, and equipment and is a dealer for Schacht Spindle.
