Letter from the President

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

We will be in Lincoln New Hampshire at Loon Mountain for the New Hampshire Highland Games this weekend, hope to see you up there, it’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend!

Don’t forget! 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.
