Chicago Scots

The Chicago Scots enthusiastically invite everyone who is Scottish by birth, by heritage or simply by inclination to come and enjoy an evening of history, community & culture as the oldest charity in Illinois hosts an evening of Scottish fun at Chicago’s oldest cultural museum, the Chicago History Museum.

This year’s event will be a “moveable feast.” All our wonderful traditions will be delivered in COVID-careful ways but still with Scottish flair!

Bring your appetite for our culinary food stations with specialty Scottish menu items. You’ll have access to the Chicago History Museum’s newest exhibits City on Fire: Chicago 1871 and Vivian Maier: In Color. We will also be showcasing some treasures from our own Chicago Scots museum. Tickets start at $200.

Throughout the evening you will be able to enjoy performances and experiences including:

  • Pipe Bands
  • Highland Dancing
  • Awards Ceremonies
  • Presentation of the Haggis
  • Toasts & Tributes
  • The National Chef of Scotland, Gary Maclean!
  • And much more!

We will observe all prevailing COVID-19 safety protocols and proof of vaccination will be required to attend the event.
