About Us

The Society is a community of people in the Quad Cities area that come together to promote and encourage Scottish history, culture, and tradition in specific, and Celtic culture in general. During the year we have opportunity to get together and celebrate such traditional occasions as the Robert Burns Dinner, Beltane, Tartan Day, Samhain, St. Andrews Day and others.

Additionally we support other groups and organizations that promote Scottish and Celtic tradition such as the Celtic Festival and Highland Games each September, an annual Scottish Golf Day, and the Blackhawk Pipes and Drums.

We invite you and your family to join us! If you have an interest in Scottish and/or Celtic history, culture and tradition, then we invite you to join! No Scottish heritage (or kilt) is required! Please see our Join Now page for Membership Application link. Annual dues are just $10.00 per person, or $20.00 for a family.
