The Scottish Society of Ottawa has named Glengarry the 2019 Kilt State Capital of Canada.
In 2018, North Glengarry introduced an important innovation to the kilt skate phenomenon.  For the first time, a skate was held in an indoor arena, combined with a social full of music, food and beverages and lots of fellowship in the warmth of an arena hall.  North Glengarry kept the event indoors again in 2019, and within a few days, a video of the skating had 200,000 likes on Facebook.

The video highlighted a component that is becoming more common in many kilt skates:  skating musicians.
