The purpose of the Upper East Tennessee Celtic Society is to provide education about the culture, heritage, and contributions of the Celts and Celtic nations. The Society promotes the perpetuation of Celtic culture, traditions, customs, history, art, literature, and music. Various venues are provided for recognizing and celebrating the Celts rich legacy through education and activities that promote enjoyment, entertainment, physical, mental, and social benefits of the Society's members and the general public.
We host multiple events throughout the year, such as the East Tennessee Celtic Festival and our annual Society Christmas Party, and participate in other events to help educate those in our area about our shared Celtic heritage.
The Upper East Tennessee Celtic Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization registered with the State of Tennessee and based in Johnson City. UETCS is a voting member of the Folk Alliance International and, as such, helps to promote the proliferation of our cultural heritage through education, advocacy, and performance.
