Robert Burns Dinner

Robert Burns dinner celebrations commemorate his birthday on January 25th. Across America and the world, many Scots meet to celebrate the poet laureate of Scotland, some as late as mid-February.

Some are very formal affairs, others just casual get-togethers. Some see lots of tartans present, others are just street clothes. If you’re interested in the Burn’s tartans, here they are. Robert was very fond of wearing his check tartan around his property.

At the Robert Burns Dinner celebrations you’ll find music, singing, dancing, Scottish food, piping in the Haggis, poetry readings, kilts and ladies wear ~ everything from authentic to bumbee.

The meal will consist of Scottish food, with Haggis as the highlight. If you don’t know what Haggis is, do at least try it.
