Burns Dinner 2025

Please join us for the annual Robert Burns Dinner!

Celebrate and learn about Scottish culture and tradition with food, ceremony, and dancing!
Join your local Scottish cultural organization for our annual Robert Burns Dinner.
Robert Burns is considered the national poet of Scotland and a dinner is held in his honor on or near his birthday every year. Like most dinners, ours will feature Scottish food like haggis, ceremonial readings and toasts, bag-piping, and Scottish social dancing. We will also have a raffle and dessert contest.
This is a very family friendly event.
