If you are a clan representative and wish to get more information in participating in this year's Clan Row, please contact our Clan Coordinator, Dave Halt.
Over the past two decades, the Springfield Area Highland Games & Celtic Festival has had the pleasure of presenting to the Illinois public a proud picture of what it means to be of Celtic descent. From the whirl of the kilt during a Highland Fling, the unforgettable sound of 300 pipers and drummers playing in a massed band, and the display of grace, skill and brutal power of the ancient Celtic athletes, the Games have always been rooted in the cultural foundation of the Celtic Clan system. The participants of the Springfield Area Highland Games & Celtic Festival Clan Row hope to inspire fellow Celts to discover their ancient roots. In addition, we would encourage non-Celts to take a wee-bit-o-time to share in our heritage and to take the time to discover and develop pride in their own ancestral heritage.
