Scotland Week 2013 Opens in New York!

Homecoming Scotland Bus New York for Scotland Week

Welcome to #Scotweek! Scotland Week is a week long celebration of Scotland from the 3rd to the 10th April within the USA and Canada. Now entering its 6th year, it is an annual event focused on all things Scotland – featuring music, parades and other great events! This year we will be celebrating Scotland Week 2013 (unsurprisingly!).

Want to know what’s going down? Read on for a quick glimpse of the events taking place and how we’re going to cover them! We’ll be mixing things up a little, as we are going to be offering a #homecoming2014 teaser in the US/Canada as well!

Tweeting from the United States

To celebrate Scotland Week, we’re going to be handing over the VisiScotland Twitter to our US colleagues every afternoon – UK time. Our US audience will be able to check out Twitter first thing in the morning, with the team will be sharing news, commentary and thoughts straight from the heart of the celebrations!
