Celtic Heritage Society Membership

Celtic Heritage Society

The Celtic Heritage Society was founded in Jackson, Mississippi in May 1992 after the first CelticFest MS was held in Sept 1991. We are a 501(c)3 federally tax exempt civic and educational nonprofit organization focused on the study, promotion, and preservation of Celtic traditions and culture. This includes music, dance, history, language, literature, art and other activities native to Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall, and the Isle of Man.  In addition to CelticFest Mississippi, the CHS sponsors céilís during the year (pronounced “kay-lee”)–a Celtic celebration featuring traditional music and dance, as well as music events

All CHS Board members & Directors of CelticFest are Volunteers and receive no monetary compensation. 

CHS functions are intentionally family events–children are always welcome.

By its charter, membership in the CHS and participation in society functions are open to all. Immigrants from Celtic nations contributed much of their own heritage to Southern culture. We encourage participation in all CHS activities regardless of your own personal ethnic background.  

Full Annual Membership in the Celtic Heritage Society runs from January to December and is $25. You will receive a membership card and CelticFest Bumper Sticker in the mail. Unless we are close to the Festival date in which case you will pick up your membership goodies at the Festival Merchandise desk.  

Members get Free Reserved Parking at CelticFest so bring your membership card to show the Parking Attendant.  (If you haven’t received your card by the Festival, just show your confirmation email to the parking attendant? Also show it at the CHS Booth during the Festival to receive two free merchandise or 50/50 Raffle Tickets and $10 off the official Festival T-Shirt.   Members who volunteer to work a shift at the Festival receive VIP All Access Passes to eat and drink during the Festival in the Catering Tent because you ROCK! 

Benefits of Membership also includes updates and information before the general public via our members only email list, discounts to Society functions and most importantly, helping us to provide Celtic events here in Mississippi!
