Tartan Day Parade
National Tartan Day is a US observance on April 6 each year. It commemorates the Scottish Declaration of Independence, from which the American Declaration of Independence was modelled on. It also recognizes achievements of Americans of Scottish descent.
There’s no better symbol of thriving Scottish-American culture than the Tartan Day Parade 2014, where hundreds of pipers and thousands of marchers make their way up 6th Avenue from 45th to 55th Street as eager New Yorkers watch along the parade route. The parade starts at 2 pm at 45th and Sixth Avenue and ends at 55th Street.
