Celtic Festival and Highland Games of the Quad Cities



Clans and Heritage

Find out about the proud Celtic heritage by visiting the colorful tents and exhibits on Clan Row, our gathering place for Celtic societies.

Clan Row is the ideal place to research family roots or just learn more about the fascinating history of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall and other Celtic countries. Dont forget to catch the colorful parade of tartans, which recreates an old ritual of respect and allegiance. Everyone with a connection to a clan or association is invited to march in the parade under its banner.

You'll also find more information and genealogy tips in the Education area. Youre invited to attend special workshops on Celtic language, customs, music and dance, or see special exhibits of Celtic animals. And at various times throughout the day, look for exciting Irish, Scottish, and other Celtic dance performances.
