Strutting Short Legs and Big Attitude, Door County’s Annual Parade of Scots, May 21

Over 130 Scottish Terriers from eleven states will be arriving in Baileys Harbor for the 11th Annual Door County Scottie Rally (DCSR) on Saturday, May 21.

It’s “Scot” to be Scottie time once again. Those bag pipes will soon beckon one and all who love a dog parade to make their way to Baileys Harbor! While the enthusiasts’ Scottie Rally is held on private property and requires admission, the annual “Parade of Scots” is free and open to the public.

Parade viewers are encouraged to assemble along Park Rd, State Highway 57 and County F/EE in downtown Baileys Harbor. The parade travels east on Cty F/EE from Juniper Ridge Road and arrives at the Baileys Harbor Town Square at approximately 11:30 am. Parade viewers are encouraged to assemble by 11:15 am to be sure they don’t miss the viewing of these small dogs with “big attitude!”

The Clan Donald Pipe and Drum Corps are returning to lead the parade once again. Many of the celebrated dogs have actually been rescued from shelters and or abandonment and have found their forever 2nd chance homes with the Scottie Rally enthusiasts.

In the past 11 years, these gatherings of Scottie devotees taking place all across North America have raised over $65,000 to support Scottish Terrier health related research and Scottie Rescue. For further information or to purchase DCSR shirts and memorabilia log on to or call 920.493.5878.
