Wales Week in New York
Wales Week in New York

It’s simple.
We want to create noise - as much Welsh noise as possible.

Welcome

Where Wales meets New York, when New York celebrates Wales. 


Wales Week in New York is an annual series of activities and events that celebrate and promote everything that's great about Wales. 


Through a calendar of events around St David's Day, which galvanizes existing Welsh communities in New York City, Wales Week in New York builds a positive momentum across the city that is distinctly about Wales. 


This is an opportunity for organisations in Wales through which they can promote their products and services, and develop new New York-based audiences, partnerships and connections. 


So together, with the best in Welsh business, music, art, food, tourism, heritage, sport, public life and the media, we're promoting a fortnight of events that will collectively shout how good we truly are!

About Wales Week

About Us

image28

We want others to know what's great about being Welsh, and we want them to join us in our celebrations. Every nation is unique, and each has their own way of commemorating this. Wales Week in New York is our moment, and we plan to use this as a stepping stone to help raise the profile of everything that is awesome about Wales. 

Event History

image29

Wales Week in New York was a natural addition to an already successful initiative in the UK as Wales Week in London, founded in 2015 by two Welsh-based business people, Dan Langford and Mike Jordan - importantly though, the initiative could only achieve what is has because of the tremendous response from the Welsh communities across London, and the incredible support they received from various partners and sponsors.

Wales Week in London also owes a huge debt of thanks to the Welsh Government and the Office of the Secretary of State for Wales - working collaboratively and with a shared ambition to promote a modern Wales around the world.

Wales Week in New York was launched by Welsh-American business executive, Ty Francis MBE in December 2018. Ty also co-founded New York Welsh, alongside Marc Walby, Gwilym Roberts-Harry, Rhodri Morgan and Sioned Wyn Morgan, which is now New York’s largest Welsh social and business network aimed at supporting Welsh people (and those with Welsh roots) in New York City. Also the most active Welsh Society in NYC, it brings the New York Welsh community together monthly, supporting business and the arts. It provides networking support for those new to NYC and for business overseas wanting to expand the USA
