When you think of New York you think of Times Square, Central Park, the Yankees - but do you ever think of tartan?

Maybe you should start, as NYC Tartan Week is growing year by year and continues to recognise and celebrate the contributions made by Scottish-Americans to the United States - not to mention being an absolutely fantastic time! The “week” - which can last up to 21 days - culminates in a huge parade boasting hundreds of pipers, thousands of marchers and huge crowds to cheer them on. This began 18 years ago, and the 18th anniversary is set to be the biggest yet. 

As well as the parade, there's an exciting range of events including concerts, seminars, ceilidhs and much more. Our Managing Director, John McIlvogue, is excited to be representing Stevens & Graham in New York this week, and will be in amongst the festivites on the day of the parade.
