New York celebrates Tartan Week

The American Scottish Foundation (ASF) recently played a key role in celebrating the 25th annual Tartan Day Parade in New York City. Events took place across the city including the Tartan Day Observance at Bryant Park and the parade with thousands of participants celebrating Scotland and marching down 6th Avenue.

This year’s Grand Marshal was Scottish television personality Gail Porter. The 25th edition of Tartan Week also included the first ever NYC Tartan Week Mòd, which was won by Cynthian Knight from Virginia. The ASF is proud to be a founding member of the National Tartan Day New York Parade Committee, helping to organize the Parade alongside the St Andrews Society of New York, New York Caledonian Club and Clan Campbell. The 2024 NYC Tartan Day Parade will be held on National Tartan Day, Saturday April 6, 2024.
