Welcome to the Scottish American Society of the Quad Cities!

We're a community of people who come together to celebrate Scottish history, culture, and tradition, and our connections with our Celtic "cousins." If you're interested in Scottish and or Celtic history and tradition, you're more than welcome to join us! Events include traditional celebrations, such as our annual Robert Burns Dinner, Beltane, Tartan Day, Samhain, and St. Andrews Day, and we also support other groups that promote Scottish/Celtic traditions, heritage, and culture. It is a great organization of friendly people, and we are always accepting new members. Scottish heritage or ancestry is not required. Please see our membership page, and do join us at an event. 


 Birdies for Charity organization
If you would like to consider a small donation to the Scottish American Society, your generosity will help us build our education and culture fund, as well as support the printing and mailing of our newsletter, much needed upgrades to this website, and more needs over and above our minimal membership cost. Our Birdies number is 2179. 
Better yet, by donating through Birdies, you increase your impact due to the 5% Birdies Match. Every $1 magically becomes $1.05! To donate, visit birdiesforcharity.com/donate and enter Birdies number 2179 (or search for Scottish American Society.)

  • Flood Relief efforts at the Salvation Army of the Quad Cities
  • Efforts to rebuild the Irish Football Club of the Quad Cities. The team includes people from all backgrounds, including Scots, and is working on a youth team. 
  • Scottish dance instruction through Studio A Dance Company and Colleen's School of Celtic Dance. Our thanks to the dancers who performed at our 2020 Burns Night!
