What We Do

The purpose of Appalachian Highlands Celts is to provide education about the culture, heritage, and contributions of the Celts and Celtic nations. The Society promotes the perpetuation of Celtic culture, traditions, customs, history, art, literature, and music. Various venues are provided for recognizing and celebrating the Celts rich legacy through education and activities that promote enjoyment, entertainment, physical, mental, and social benefits of the Society's members and the general public.


During the year, AHC hosts and participates in events throughout our area to help promote our Celtic heritage. From festivals to Highland games events to educational presentations and more, there is something to interest every member of your family. We look forward to seeing you throughout the year!
