NEW YORK CITY TARTAN DAY PARADE
April 6 has been officially (Presidential Proclamation, in fact) designated as National Tartan Day in the United States. A day for recognizing Scottish and Scottish-American contributions to the United States, and for celebrating Scottish heritage and pride. The Parade is held annually on a Saturday closest to the 6th. The Parade features bagpipe bands playing Scottish music, thousands of marchers dressed in tartan, many more proudly representing their clans, plus a slew of groups and associations celebrating Scottish heritage. Also included are the popular four-legged participants, the Dog Pack, comprising several Scottish dog breeds. The days before are called “Tartan Week” and are filled with a full range of Scottish-themed events.
