“The Henderson’s are coming”

In just 9 months, October 5th, 6th, and 7th, we will be hosting the Annual General Meeting of the Clan Henderson Society during the Aztec Highland Games and Celtic Festival in Aztec, New Mexico.

The Festival

For information about the Aztec Highland Games and Celtic Festival, look here:


The Host Hotel will be Presidential Inn and Suites in Aztec. Mention the Aztec Highland Games and Clan Henderson for reduced rates. Use the Group Rate Code AHGCF18. Here is where we have reserved a conference room for Friday afternoon’s Henderson board meeting, and the Festival meet & Greet is held outside on the patio Friday night. Their web page is:

As a backup hotel, also in Aztec, we  have the Step Back Inn. Also offering special rates for the Highland Games, this quaint hotel has 38 rooms. Fair warning, it’s two stories and no elevator so keep that in mind. Also, the pipe bands have already booked 16 rooms on the bottom floor before they went home after the last festival. Their web page can be found here:




There are no longer flights into the Farmington Airport. The best option has always been Durango La Plata Regional Airport (DRO) about 45 minutes north of Aztec. They have plenty of flights and car rentals. Next best is Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ) about 3 hours south of Aztec.


We are currently scoping out different venues for our own Ceilidh on Saturday night. More coming on that soon, but rest assured, anyone presenting a bottle of Old Pultenny, Caol Ila, or Hendrick’s Gin at the door will be welcomed heartily and with great cheer!
