Celtic Heritage Society

The Celtic Heritage Society was founded in Jackson, Mississippi in May 1992. 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.  All CHS Board members & Directors of CelticFest are Volunteers and receive no monetary compensation. 

The term “Celts” refers to tribes of people that shared similar traditions, customs, language, and culture and dominated Western Europe from as far back as 1200 B.C.

Much of this unique cultural heritage still exists today, especially in Ireland, where the Irish language is still spoken and where people celebrate and remain passionate about Celtic roots.


Annual Membership in the Celtic Heritage Society runs from January to December and is $25 for individuals and $40 for a Family Membership (Two people in the same household). Your Membership card(s) will be mailed to you and serves as your Free Admission Ticket to the next CelticFest Mississippi as well as for discounts off of any other Society event during the year. We appreciate your commitment to bring Celtic cultural events to Mississippi!
