About this event

The Washington Tattoo invites you to experience the Tartan Day Tattoo D.C. 2024 – a spectacular evening of music and dance showcasing the very best of American and Scottish cultures, presented live on stage in a public theatre for the first time in the Washington DC area!

Immerse yourself in a captivating showcase that blends traditional and contemporary music and dance, bringing together the very best global talent for a once in a lifetime experience. The beat of drums, the skirl of pipes, stirring marches, and colorful highland dancers will inspire, entertain, and leave you feeling uplifted as we celebrate Tartan Day 2024!

Don’t miss the opportunity to witness incredible and unique performers from around the world, with proceeds from the event supporting veterans, underserved communities and young people through The Washington Tattoo’s veteran mental health initiative, Rudiments to Recovery and The Washington Tattoo’s underserved youth mentorship programRudiments to Opportunity.

Last year’s gala was a sell-out success. Seating is limited and tickets are predicted to sell out so don’t wait to secure your chance to be part of this unforgettable, immersive experience, while supporting the mission of the Washington Tattoo – to reshape today’s conversation around mental health for active-duty personnel, veterans, first responders, and families through the power of music wellness – fueled by world-class military precision and cultural excellence.

Join us on April 2nd for a bigger, more powerful, evening you will never forget!
