Welcome to the official website of the Irish Pipers Band of San Francisco!
The band was formed in 1932 by Irish immigrants that desired to maintain the piping traditions of their native land.
The Irish Pipers are the oldest continuously active Irish Pipe Band west of the Mississippi River.
In 2012, we celebrated our 80th Anniversary!
Here you will find important information about the band's performances, competitions, fundraisers, and instruction for the bagpipes and drums.
Please visit often for continuous updates.
