The Scottish American Society of Dunedin is one of the City’s oldest 501c3 organizations. We are dedicated to preserving Dunedin’s Scottish Heritage and sustaining the Scottish Arts within the Community.

In January 2020, we introduced the first DunedinLive: Haggis Winter Music Fest. This new festival in Downtown Dunedin featured Celtic Music, not only in the Scottish American Society Hall, but also in many venues in Downtown Dunedin over the entire weekend.
