Each year the Alabama Celtic Association continues to advance the preservation and promotion of Celtic Heritage, Arts and Education in the State of Alabama. It is a 501c-3 non-profit organization staffed entirely by volunteers that provide resources to help Celtic organizations.

Alabama is home to a wide variety of Celtic organizations and interests. There are several Scottish and Irish Dance schools, Pipe and Drum Bands, Scottish Highland Games, Irish Events, Celtic bands and musicians, as well as Celtic Heritage organizations and Clan Societies.

The Alabama Celtic Association has been able to provide enrichment scholarships for members of our community through various fundraising efforts. However, continued fundraising is essential to continue to provide these scholarships. Our goal for the coming year is to fund four $500.00 enrichment scholarships in the areas of dance and music. Scholarship applications and guidelines will be available on our website February 1st. Deadline for applications will be March 1st so that we can announce the recipients on March 17th.

On February 15th, the Alabama Celtic Association will host a night of music and dance at Bottletree Café in Birmingham. The evening will begin at 7:00 and will include a host of area musicians and dancers who will share their talents in a showcase format. Entry to the event will be $15 and 100% of the profits after venue costs will go towards the Alabama Celtic Association scholarship fund. The evenings entertainment will incude a raffle for a variety of wonderful treats and surprises.

Please join us on February 15th for this evening of music and dance. If you cannot join us, please consider making your tax free donation (see mailing address below) to help fund these scholarships. For more information on the Alabama Celtic Association and the programs and support we offer, please visit or contact us at celticalabama@gmail.com.

Thanks to Bottletree Cafe, tickets are now available on their website for purchase.
