Kalamazoo Scottish Association

The Kalamazoo Scottish Festival Association is a registered 501c3 Non-Profit organization, dedicated to preserving Scottish history and culture in the Kalamazoo area. We work with a number of Michigan Scottish Organizations and the Council of Scottish Clans and Associations(COSCA).  

Our main event is our Annual Festival, held the second weekend of September in Kindleberger Park. This free, family friendly event has been a staple of Kalamazoo for 30+ Years - in fact, this year marks the 32nd year! Here you can meet the clans, hear the pipes roar, learn more about your Scottish roots, and have a grand time. Admission is FREE!

We also have several other family friendly events throughout the year, so please check back often for updates!
