Tartan Week

Disclosure: Information in the guide provided and shared with permission. All opinions are my own.

Tartan Week in NYC is a week-long celebration of Scottish heritage to recognize achievements and contributions of Scottish Americans to the United States. Usually this fun week offers lots of Scottish-themed events and activities throughout the city as well as a big parade with hundreds of participants from all over America, wearing traditional Scottish attire.

It sounds like a fantastic week and as it celebrates its 22nd year, it will be a virtual online event (due to the pandemic) from April 5th through the 11th and we have some fun ideas below to share with you to get you in the Scottish spirit!
