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. You may find us at the Celtic Festival and Highland Games, hosting an annual Scottish Golf Day, or at Blackhawk Pipes and Drums performances.

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. Congratulations to our newest board members: Ron Stuart and Jill Yates!  

The SAS recently donated $500 to support rebuilding efforts of the Irish Football Club of the Quad Cities, presenting a check at their September 14 home game.  The club is interesting in rebuilding rugby in the Quad Cities, which includes Scots and is working on developing youth teams as well. The name was previously registered.  
The club previously supported flood relief efforts at the Salvation Army of the Quad Cities. See our Events page for a photo
Our thanks to members who supported Birdies for Charity, the Scottish Golf Event, and other fundraising efforts.  
Speaking of events, see below!  

UPCOMING EVENTS:  See the "Events" page to check out details on upcoming events.
Sadly, the Celtic Highland Games of the Quad Cities was cancelled this year, due to previous flood damage at Centennial Park. In good news, however, the CHG committee worked with Nancy, their Chicago dance coordinator, to offer a Scottish Dance Competition, at The Quad Cities Music Guild at 1584 34th Ave in Moline on September 21st from 9-3. 
Though the SAS was not a sponsor of this event, we applaud the effort to keep Scottish dance alive!
