Baton Rouge Organizations

Ever since the Irish set foot in America, they have sought to connect with other Americans of Irish descent.  Today, millions of Irish Americans continue to seek the companionship of other American Irish and embrace their Irish heritage through participation in Irish American organizations. These Baton Rouge Organizations provide local fellowship, comradery and a melding with those traditions. We are proud of our Baton Rouge Organizations.

 

The Baton Rouge Irish Club

The Baton Rouge Irish Club promotes, encourages and supports Irish Culture, through the fellowship of its members and events held throughout the year. Meeting the 3rd Wednesday of every month, the organization appeals to those in the Greater Baton Rouge Area. Events include the Shamrocks and Champagne Brunch where the Golden Harp award is given to an outstanding volunteer, the Bloomsday Celebration, our signatory B.R. Irish Film Festival in July, a Dinner Theatre, and our primary fund raising function, the Wine and Food Experience.

The Celtic Society of Louisiana

“No one has more fun or enjoys the Wearin’ of the Green parade more than The Celtic Society of Louisiana, Krewe of Mac. Our Krewe consists of Bagpipers, walkers in Green Derbies and White Tales, two large floats and Krewe Members from 7 years old to 70. Our Celebration starts a week in advance as we give out the Annual Green Derby award. Followed by float preparations. We always have homemade Irish decorations. We are one of the first Krewes to arrive at line up and after the parade we return to the CSOL "an Chistin" (Irish for the kitchen) for an after party with traditional Irish Music. From start to finish no one wears the green with more pride and with a bigger smile than the Celtic Society Krewe of Mac!!”

The Celtic Society celebrates Celtic Culture all year round. As a member you interact with people who have similar interest, activities and hobbies within the Celtic Culture. We hold a number of events at An Chistin (the Kitchen) throughout the year that are family oriented.
