Tartan Week

 

 

New York Celebrates Scottish-American Heritage
April 2 to 10, a full week of events,
 topped off with a parade

 

The National Tartan Day New York Committee invites all New Yorkers to join in celebrating the 12th Annual Tartan Week, from April 2rd to 10th.

"On April 2, a new exhibition entitled, 'Scotland's Gift' opens at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum reflecting the contributions of the Scottish people."

On April 3rd, the 10k Scotland Run takes place in Central Park. Over 7,000 people completed the run last year.  On Ellis Island, two days of festivities and pagentry will be taking place reflecting Scottish immigrant history.

Monday April 5th, Tartan Week continues down in Lower Manhattan with an evening of Scottish music from Stone Street to the East River. 

The evening begins at 6pm with a concert in the British Garden at Hanover Square featuring New York-based McTalla Mor, Edinburgh’s A Whisky Kiss “unplugged”, and Laura McGhee, rock violinist from Glasgow, together with the New York Scottish Pipes & Drums.  The music continues along the cobbled way of Stone Street, with performances at Ullysees and Becketts.

There are diverse events throughout the week, ranging from the Dressed to Kilt fashion extravaganza to A Whisky Live, from the Adam Smith Business Forum, to the Harry Benson photo exhibit, to the Pre-Parade Ceilidh, topped off by the Parade - there are events for all. 

On Saturday April 10th, the day begins at 10am with the Kirkin’ o’ the Tartan, a Scottish-American non-denominational church service which includes the blessing of tartan flags.

The thrilling sound of bagpipes brings the 12th Annual Tartan Day Parade to the Avenue of the Americas  (6th Avenue) at 2pm.  Alex Fergusson, Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament, is this year’s Grand Marshal. The parade goes from 45th Street to 55th Street.

Thousands of pipers, drummers, and members of Scottish clans and societies, are joined by the biggest pack of wee Scotties and Westies in any parade.  New York will be awash in tartan and kilts as Scottish Americans celebrate their heritage and friendship.

To learn more about all the events or how you too can join in, visit www.tartanweek.com
