Pittsburgh Tartan Day Celebration

What is Tartan Day?

On April 6, 1320 the Declaration of Arbroath was signed asserting Scotland’s sovereignty over England’s territorial claims. This commemorates the signing of Scotland’s Declaration of Independence. This day is set aside every year by Scottish-Americans to reflect on and celebrate their heritage.

On March 20, 1998, the US Senate Resolution 155 was passed declaring April 6th as National Tartan Day. Throughout the country, there are festivals and parades celebrating this day.

The members of the St. Andrew’s Society of Pittsburgh will host visitors on April 7th, 2018 between 10:00 AM and 4:30 PM at Bethel Presbyterian Church. The event is free to the public. There will be entertainment from bagpipers, fiddlers, and dancers. Food, raffles, Celtic workshops, and a variety of gifts can be purchased. Proceeds from the celebration benefit the Tartan Day Scholarship Fund. This fund provides assistance for students of the Scottish Arts. The St. Andrew’s Society of Pittsburgh is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that preserves and promotes Scottish heritage.
