Every year on March 10, International Bagpipe Day celebrates this unique instrument. The day also promotes the diversity of bagpipes to the general public.
Pipers around the world are encouraged to play their bagpipes. In past years, pipers, instrument makers, and scholars from the United States, Greece, Sweden, Nigeria, the UK, Scotland, and Ireland have held musical events to celebrate International Bagpipe Day.
International Bagpipe Day History:
Andy Letcher, the publicity officer for the Bagpipe Society, created International Bagpipe Day. The International Bagpipe Organisation also helps facilitate the day. They celebrated the first event on March 10, 2012. In addition to this day, there is an International Bagpipe Conference held every two years in March.
