The Cambrian Benevolent Society of Chicago was organized in 1853 in response to the needs of many Welsh immigrants who came to the city ill-prepared for life on the frontier. Its first priority was to raise funds to assist those who found themselves in difficult circumstances. Over time Cambrian has assumed a more cultural role as it strives to preserve a Welsh identity within the city. Our regular events include a celebration for St David’s Day, (March 1st), a summer picnic, a Gymanfa Ganu, and more.
It is one of the oldest ethnic societies in the city.
Croeso! (Welcome!) Please join us in celebrating Wales in Chicago
