Welcome to the Hibernian Society of Utah

The Hibernian Society of Utah was formed more than 30 years ago to promote and preserve Irish history, culture and traditions within the State of Utah. The Society meets once a month, holds informal classes and annually presents Utah's St. Patrick's Day celebrations.

Hibernians @ Scottish Fest

Join us at the Hibernian Stage at the Utah Scottish Festival June 12 & 13 at Thanksgiving Point.  The local Scots know people demand a little Irish among all the kilts, so they have booked a stage of Irish acts for the two-day festival!  Your Hibernian Society will be on hand at the Hibernian Stage. Stop by to help out or just say "hello."  After you have checked out the Irish dancing and music there is a lot more to see, including the always exciting Highland Games. The Utah Scottish Festival runs Friday from 5 pm and all day Saturday, ending with a concert Saturday night.  Festival info at UtahScots.org.

Parade Awards

Thanks to all who marched and cheered the 2015 parade Going Green.  And a huge thanks to the wonderful musicians and dancers who made the post-Parade Siamsa a blast.  Truly a wonderful day for the Irish in Salt Lake City!   And the winners are ...

Best Over-All Entry President's Trophy -- McNamara's Band!  They have been with us since the beginning, since they were pups, but believe it or not this is the first time McNamara's Band has taken home the President's Trophy.  A well-deserved honor and a lesson to other would-be award winners: just pay your dues for 35 years and you too could walk away with a trophy.
