About the Celtic Cultural Alliance
© 2014 Celtic Classic – Highland Games & Festival.
All rights reserved.
On Columbus Day weekend in 1988, the first Celtic Classic was presented by a small group of individuals. The goal of this dedicated group was to create an event that symbolizes Celtic spirit and history, and to provide momentum for an organization focused on promoting Celtic culture. This group has now evolved into the Celtic Cultural Alliance to better communicate the overall goals of the organization.
The CCA has expanded with year-round programming to support the mission of promoting and preserving Celtic culture through arts, music, literature, dance and history programs. True to the spirit of ‘Next Generation’, the CCA also offers scholarships to promising young students of Celtic arts. These annual scholarships are available to arts students including Irish Step Dance, Highland Dance, Fiddle and Bagpipes.
The Celtic Classic has become one of the largest Highland games and festivals in North America. Each year, over 250,000 visitors come to historic Bethlehem to take part in this celebration of all things Celtic. The organization has expanded to programs throughout the year. Our educational programming has expanded to include community outreach events at area school districts, religious institutions, local theaters and Lehigh Valley colleges. A range of scholarships are awarded each year in various areas of Celtic culture.
