Mission Statement

Our mission: The Welsh Society of Oregon develops, and perpetuates Welsh heritage, culture, and music in Oregon. We strive to sustain: pride in being Welsh, support for learning about Wales, the Welsh language, and exploration of Welsh-American issues by our members and for others in the community.


The Welsh Society of Oregon was originally founded in 1907 as the Portland Cambrian Society. It adopted the name Welsh Society of Portland in 2007 on the 100th anniversary of its founding. In 2015 we became the Welsh Society of Oregon to serve then entire state and southwestern Washington.
