We are an organization made up of individuals who, Scottish or not, love Scottish culture and strive to share that love with others in the state of Oklahoma. USCO brings together those interested in Celtic music, athletics, dance, ancestral research, and much more to celebrate the unique heritage of Scotland. Throughout the year, we host a wide variety of events, including the Oklahoma Highland Gathering, Burns Night, ceilidhs (kay-lee, Gaelic for party), and in previous years we hosted the Iron Thistle Scottish Festival. We’re always doing something, so check our Events calendar often! Join us!Join USCO Today!
The United Scottish Clans of Oklahoma cares deeply for the safety and well-being of its attendees as well as the integrity of its annual festival. As much as we anticipated this year’s event, we ran into logistical hurdles as well as rising health concerns with COVID-19.
At the end of the day, our goal is for everyone to enjoy the festival — and have the opportunity to enjoy it for years to come. Though it’s with heavy hearts that we must cancel, we’re looking ahead and taking this time to expand our programming.
To our clans, vendors and sponsors — we’ll be reaching out to you personally within a week to discuss refunding or rolling over your investment to next year’s festival. If you require immediate assistance, please reach out to email@example.com.
We appreciate everyone reaching out to us about the event. Our mission is to preserve and promote Scottish culture around the state of Oklahoma, and this weekend has been a testament to the heart and soul poured into our organization by so many. Thank you for your patience, your flexibility, and most of all — a shared vision for creating a thriving Scottish, Irish and Celtic community here in Oklahoma.
Please stay tuned for further updates. We hope to see you all next spring!
....See you in 2022!

Where We Came From
United Scottish Clans of Oklahoma is a 501©(3) organization founded in 1986 by Jerrel Murray and a small group of Scottish enthusiasts to educate the Oklahoma public about Scottish heritage. In under 35 years, USCO has organized 29 Scottish festivals, held in Midwest City, Edmond, and Yukon, a yearly Burns Night, and countless other events. In 1998, Jerrel Murray designed the official Oklahoma tartan — a field of blue with bands of red, black, gold, and white, pictured above. The organization has assisted a variety of Scottish activities in central Oklahoma, including pipe and drum bands, Scottish Highland and country dance, ancestral research, and Gaelic studies.Join USCO Today!
