This year has seen an explosion of interest in local or regional gatherings. In 2023, there has been a Mòd in New York City for the first time since the 19th cenury, the first ever Mòd in Kentucky, and a longer standing Mòd at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in North Carolina. In August there will be a new Mòd in Maryland, and in November An Comunn Gàidhealach Ameireaganach - The American Scottish Gaelic Society, will hold the 36th US National Mòd / Mòd Naiseanta Aimeireagaidh.
