The biggest celebration of Scottish heritage and culture, this side of the Atlantic!
For 25 years, NYC Tartan Week has been celebrating Scottish-American heritage by providing meaningful connections through the celebration of Scottish culture in New York City. Our organization and events play an integral role each year in marking National Tartan Day (April 6), a day declared by the U.S. Senate in 1998 to officially recognize the “outstanding achievements and contributions made by Scottish Americans to the United States.”
Through concerts, ceilidhs, parties, and our flagship NYC Tartan Day Parade, NYC Tartan Week continues to attract the best Scottish and Scottish-American artists, entrepreneurs, organizations, and more to promote, support, and develop deeper personal connections with the Scottish diaspora in America.
Recognized on both sides of the Atlantic and beyond for its unique ability to span multiple transatlantic markets, NYC Tartan Week offers many opportunities at a variety of price points for sponsors to build and advertise their brand, customer base, and business network while gaining exposure to a wide audience passionate about all things Scottish in the heart of NYC.
After a record-breaking 25th Anniversary year in 2023, we will continue to see growth in 2024 along with even more opportunities to get involved. Get in touch and find out how we can work together toward another successful year!

For VisitScotland, NYC Tartan Week and the NYC Tartan Day Parade offer an excellent platform through which to reach New York City residents, stakeholders, and communities at a time when Scotland is uniquely in the city spotlight. Since the USA remains Scotland’s largest international visitor market - with strong direct air links and connectivity, as well as a large and active diaspora network – NYC Tartan Week is an opportunity for Scottish industry to make new connections and strengthen old ties, identifying new and exciting opportunities.
