February  27th, 2019

The Countdown is on, and the excitement  is mounting, for the Tartan Week 2019 and the 21st Annual New York Tartan Day Parade on Saturday April 6th.

This year's Parade is very special to the American-Scottish Foundation as it will mark the 20th Anniversary of the first 
New York Tartan Day Parade that took place in 1999 - which was led by of our now Chairman Emeritus, Alan Bain. 

And what a great Parade it is shaping up to be with the Parade being led by Grand Marshal 
Sir Billy Connolly.

The Parade which steps off at 2pm from 44th and Sixth Avenue will top off a week full of events.
A full list can be found at nyctartanweek.org.
