About Us

The Society is a community of people in the Quad Cities area with common interests in Scottish history, culture, and tradition, as well as Celtic culture in general. We celebrate such traditional occasions as the Robert Burns Dinner, Beltane, Tartan Day, Samhain, St. Andrews Day and others. We also host special events, such as the Scottish Golf Day. We're also pleased to support other like-minded organizations, such as the Celtic Festival and Highland Games, St. Patrick's Society Grand Parade, 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.
