Ways to Support the Parade
Become a friend of the parade today. There are many ways to show your support from purchasing our Annual 2015 Tartan Day Parade Pin to advertising on our website.
None of this would be possible without our volunteers and sponsors, and I extend a special thank you to all who helped make the Parade happen.
Thousands turned out to march and tens of thousands more to cheer as we celebrated Scottish-American heritage and pride and the continuing bonds of friendship between our countries – despite the Scottish-type weather!
A special thank you to Grand Marshal Sam Heughan, star of the popular Starz television series “Outlander,” who led the parade up Sixth Avenue.
Thank you also to all the bands that marched, including our visitors from Scotland – the Edinburgh Academy Pipe and Drum Band and the Strathallan School Pipe Band.
A mighty wave of the sword to the Vikings – the Up Helly Aa Jarl Squad 2016 who once again joined us from the Shetland Islands.
And of course, a “good dog!” to all the Scotties and Westies (and owners) who joined in the Barbour Tartan Day Dog Pack!
On behalf of the members of the Committee – the St. Andrew’s Society of the State of New York, the New York Caledonian Club, the American-Scottish Foundation, and Clan Campbell – thank you all for your support and participation.
And finally – mark your calendars for the 19th Annual New York Tartan Day Parade – Saturday, April 9th, 2017! Registration will open shortly.
