Tartan Day

Please join The Scottish Heritage Society of North Central WV in celebrating National Tartan Day!

We'll be gathering at Meagher's Irish Pub in Bridgeport on Thursday, April 6, from 6 to...? We've invited Multi-Genre Violinist Seán Heely and 2017 National Scottish Fiddle Champion, back to entertain us, you don't want to miss this talented young man! Wear your tartan/plaid and you'll receive a free appetizer, compliments of Meagher's. Everyone is invited, Scottish or no, we even welcome the English. :-) National Tartan Day is a US observance on April 6 each year. It commemorates the Declaration of Arbroath, the Scottish Declaration of Independence, from which the American Declaration of Independence was modeled on. Almost half of the signers of the American Declaration of Independence were of Scottish descent. Since 1998, National Tartan Day has been designated as a day for all Americans, particularly those of Scottish descent, to celebrate our diverse, colorful heritage.
