National Tartan Day Parade Description

When April rolls around, many St. Patrick’s Day partiers might be upset that their favorite holiday season has expired. However, every year on April 6th, New Yorkers head to the National Tartan Day Parade for an equally fun time to celebrate Scottish heritage.

The National Tartan Day Parade draws thousands of Scots and Big Apple residents to W 45th Street to watch the procession that marches up 6th Avenue to 55th Street. National Tartan Day has been celebrated in America, and New York City, since 1998 when the U.S. Senate officially recognized National Tartan Day. Today, the National Tartan Day Parade includes hundreds of pipers and thousands of marchers who come from various Scottish, non-Scottish, international, and local organizations.

Attendees of the National Tartan Day Parade happily march into local bars after the event’s conclusion and attend the Post-Parade Party, which features live music by Scottish and Celtic bands.

No tickets are necessary to attend the National Tartan Day Parade, but you should arrive early for a good spot along the procession route.
