The 19th International Tartan Day is being held on 11th July 2015 from 9am to 4pm
It is taking place in King George Square in front of Brisbane City Hall and is proudly supported by the Brisbane City Council
International Tartan Day is an occasion where the Scottish diaspora commemorate two Scottish historical events and celebrate their heritage. The day is held on 1 July, the anniversary of the repeal of the 1747 Act of Proscription that banned the wearing of tartan. The day also acts as a celebration of the Declaration of Arbroath which was signed in 1320.
To enable as many as possible to participate, the Australian Scottish Community Qld holds the event on the nearest available weekend to the 1 July.
