About Tartan Day

In 1998, the US Congress designated April 6 as national "Tartan Day,” to celebrate the contributions to America by Scottish-Americans.  The date is the anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath (1320), one of the first documents in the world to declare a right to freedom. The Scottish Coalition, USA led the initative for a national day of recognition and celebration resulting in Congressional, Senate and Presidential recognition of National Tartan Day each year on April 6.
