Letter from the President

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

Are you a Piper, Drummer, or Highland Dancer

         

Do you not have a group to march with in the Parade? Give us a shout! We can help! Registration is open for the 2020 NYC Tartan Day Parade, make sure you get registered early! 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 City! 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 City celebration of Scottish pride.

I’m always up for a pint, i’ve met so many of you and have had a great time with everyone visiting outside of NYC Tartan Week, the invitation is still out there, if you are in NYC, give me a shout! I’d love to grab a pint with you.
