The Celtic Society of Southern Maryland Welcomes you in the languages of the seven Celtic Nations:

Our mission is to educate the general public through our celebrations and coordinating service, the Highland Games and Celtic Festival, music, dance, dress, heraldry, genealogy, and history as we celebrate the cultural heritage of the seven Celtic Nations: Ireland; Scotland; Wales; Isle of Man; Brittany; Cornwall; and Galicia/Asturias.
