About Scotland Week

Every year, in the USA and Canada, thousands of people come together to celebrate Scotland Week, the annual celebration of all things Scottish.

Scotland Week is a week long celebration of Scotland in North America. Every year in the USA and Canada thousands of people come together to celebrate Scotland Week, the annual celebration of all things Scottish.

For the last two decades, the Scottish Government, VisitScotland, SDI and many organisations have been putting on events and working together to create uniquely a Scottish experience for everyone taking part.

With over 50 million people across the world claiming Scottish ancestry (the majority of them in the USA and Canada), Scotland Week is a chance to reconnect people with their heritage. It's also an opportunity for those with an interest in Scotland to find out a little bit more.

As part of Scotland Week, New York hosts the ever popular Tartan Day Parade, on the weekend closest to National Tartan Day, April 6th.

As always, the full programme for Scotland Week contains some of the most exciting music, theatre, and art to come from Scotland.
