Tartan Day- McCulloch Heritage Centre, Pictou
April 7
Tartan Day in Canada has become an annual event. The concept of "Tartan Day" began at a meeting of the Federation of Scottish Clans in Nova Scotia on March 9,  1986. Tartan Day is a celebration of Scottish heritage on April 6th each year, the date on which the Declaration of Arbroath was signed in 1320. In Canada, on Tartan Day, Canadians are encouraged to wear tartan in commemoration of the contributions of Scots and their descendants to the fabric of our society. Visit the website to  learn more.
