    National Tartan Day at Lick's

    National Tartan Day at Lick's

    What Do People Do?

    Tartan Day celebrations include parades with pipe bands, highland dancing and sports, and other community gatherings with Scottish-themed events. While a variety of tartans are displayed, the maple leaf tartan is Canada’s official tartan.

    Public Life

    Tartan Day is an observance and not a public holiday in Canada. Although here at Licks we make sure to feel included and ensure we celebrate alongside out Scottish friends!

    Background

    On October 21, 2010, the Minister of Canadian Heritage officially declared April 6 as Tartan Day. It is celebrated on April 6 because it is the anniversary of the signing of Declaration of Arbroath in 1320, the Scottish declaration of independence. In Canada, the day originated in the late 1980s in Nova Scotia, where it was declared an official day by the provincial government. It then spread across the country, with many provinces joining in.
