Missouri Tartan Day to Present 13th Year of Heritage Celebration
St. Charles, Missouri – Missouri Tartan Day presents the 13th annual Missouri Tartan Day Festivities on April 5, 6 and 7 in Frontier Park, on the banks of the Missouri River in St. Charles. This family-friendly event offers FREE admission and will feature Highland dancing, bagpiping, demonstrations, food, athletics, and musical performances by 3 Pints Gone and Mother Grove.
The Missouri Tartan Day event is one of the largest and oldest Tartan Day celebrations in the nation, hosting approximately 30,000-40,000 attendees over each three-day event.
“This event continues to support our mission to promote Scottish and Scottish-American heritage and culture in the region,” says Shawn Steadman, Chairman of Missouri Tartan Day Festivities. “We are proud to present this event as a part of the St. Charles community and we hope to continue to generate additional support from the community as well.”
Tartan Day celebrations around the country commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath, signed on April 6, 1320, which is a declaration of Scottish independence from England and all other ruling nations. Some historians and politicians claim that the American Declaration of Independence was modeled on the Declaration of Arbroath.
