What is Tartan Day, the New York Tartan Day Parade, and Tartan Week?


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

Hello everyone, on behalf of the New York Tartan Day Committee it is my pleasure to announce that registration for the 2018 NYC Tartan Day Parade is now OPEN.

Plans are already underway for this our 20th Annual Tartan Day Parade AND the 20th Anniversary of Tartan Day.

Please head to our registration page to register your group, band, clan, or dog. All are welcome.

Registration is easy, but if there are any issues, please email register@nyctartanweek.org and someone will get back to you

This year we are adding new Scottish Dog Groups to challenge the Scottie and Westie Tartan Dog Pack for most popular dog honors.

We want to see you all out on Sixth Avenue marching with pride for Tartan Day, for your love of Scotland and all things Scottish, and to celebrate the unique friendship of Scotland and the USA.

This is a very special year for the Parade. We have made it to our 20th Year with the help of so many - register to march or come cheer us on.

Don't forget, if you are in NYC between now and then, look us up. We would love to see you, maybe even join you for a wee dram or a pint.
