'A Hundred Thousand Welcomes to Kalamazoo!'

Home of the annual Kalamazoo Scottish Festival and Games!

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!


For now, mark your calendars for the following:

Kalamazoo Scottish Country Dancers

Scottish Country Dancing is the traditional form of Scottish social dancing. Historically, it was an inclusive form of dance, practiced by all Scots regardless of social status; and it is now enjoyed throughout the world by people of all ages and backgrounds.  We are proud to host the Kalamazoo Scottish Country Dancers each year at our Annual Festival. 

Our Kalamazoo Scottish Country Dancers meet Monday Nights at 7:00PM at Grange Hall in Kalamazoo, 3234 N 3rd St & W H Avenue. 

All are welcome to attended regardless of dance experience. No partner is necessary, but flexible, soft soled shoes are recommended.
