Come celebrate your Scottish American heritage.

The Parade is organized by The National Tartan Day New York Committee, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit registered charity. The NTDNYC is comprised of the St. Andrew’s Society of the State of New York, the New York Caledonian Club, the American-Scottish Foundation, Clan Campbell, and recent member Carnegie Hall.

The New York Tartan Day Parade began 19 years ago with a handful of Scots and Scottish-Americans walking down a sidewalk, and now includes thousands marching through the heart of Manhattan. It is the culminating event of Tartan Week, the annual Scottish festival that has grown up around April 6, Tartan Day, the national holiday to recognize the contributions of Scots and Scottish-American to the United States.
