What the heck is a "Parrot Head Club"?

The Quad City Parrot Head Club was sanctioned in December 2003.  We are one of 239 “Parrot Heads in Paradise” member clubs in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. There are currently clubs in 3 different countries, 48 states, 3 Canadian provinces and one U.S. Territory with a total membership of over 26,000 dedicated fun-loving Parrot Heads.  We are a collection of people of all ages and backgrounds who embrace the music of Jimmy Buffett and the lifestyle he writes about. We also believe in leaving things just a little better than we found them, and having a BLAST while doing it…something we like to call “partying with a purpose!”

In the past 11 years, Parrot Head Nation has collectively raised for and/or donated $29.8 million to charitable organizations. Chapters worldwide donated an estimated 3,106,000 volunteer hours to philanthropic activities to aid our communities, our environment and our fellow man!


And, there's more to the story...

These numbers, while spectacular, do not include those efforts which are not measured by dollars or man-hours, and Parrot Heads never cease to amaze in their creativity:

Parrot Heads Collect Things... canned goods, pet supplies, clothing, pop tops, old cell phones, used ink cartridges, and, of course, toys; all distributed to the appropriate agencies that get the goods to where they do the most good. And let's not forget the trash ... virtually every club works diligently to keep our nation's rivers, beaches, lakes, and highways clean with regular trash collection sessions. 

Parrot Heads Compete ... Many chapters sponsor Bowling tournaments, Volleyball tournaments, Golf tournaments and even a Cornhole tournament. Chili cook-offs are also a favorite fundraiser for a number of Clubs.

Parrot Heads March ... Most all Parrot Head Clubs build and enter a float in their local community parades, be it Christmas, Easter, Independence Day, St. Patrick's Day ... You name it; if there's a local parade, Parrot Heads will be prancing and no less than two dozen chapters (including the QCPH!) won awards for Best of Show, Best Float, etc.

From Poker Runs & Pub Crawls to the dreaded Polar Plunge, the picture is clear ... the good deeds that Parrot Heads perform for the benefit of the community, the environment and our fellow man often cannot be measured in quantitative terms, yet are so vital to the recipients.

       

The Quad City Parrot Head Club grew to over 600 members in just 5 years.

The Quad City Parrot Head Club, now holding at around 500 members, and in 2012 continues to rank as the third largest Parrot Head Club in the world!
