Letter from the President

Welcome to the official website of the New York Tartan Day Parade!

Registration for the 2019 NYC Tartan Day Parade is NOW OPEN.

Come join us to march up Sixth Avenue in New York City, to the swirl of kilts, the skirl of bagpipes and the cheers of tens of thousands of spectators. We admit to bias when we say it’s the most fun Parade in New York! Join pipe bands from across the globe, dancers, clans, dogs, politicians, Scottish cultural organizations, plus of COURSE the Loch Ness Monster, in a joyous New York celebration of Scottish pride.

The invitation is still out there, if you are in NYC, give me a shout! I’d love to grab a pint with you.
