Robert Burns Dinner and Dance

2018 date will be announced here when available.

In Dallas, the Daughters of Caledonia (many of whom are members of The Scottish Society of Dallas) sponsor a formal dinner and dance honoring Robert Burns, the "Scottish Bard." Usually held on the Saturday nearest January 25th (Burns' birthday), the evening typically features a lively recitation of Burns' "Address to the Haggis"; live pipe band music provided by the North Texas Caledonian Pipes & Drums; and demonstrations of Highland dancing by the Dallas Highland Dancers, under the direction of Fiona Robertson Alpaugh. The evening concludes with dancing (a variety of music is provided for all ages) including an opportunity for guests to try their hand at traditional, Scottish Country Dances! (Don't worry... Miss Fiona provides "on-the-spot" instructions in the form of a walk-through before each different dance.)

The event is usually held at the Hyatt Regency, North Dallas (Campbell Road, just east of Central Expressway/US-75) in Richardson, Texas. So make plans to join the Daughters in January, 2018, to celebrate the life and poetry of Robert Burns. (Full details about the 2018 event will be posted at this same location in early December of this year.)

Be aware that many of the recent Burns dinners have been sell-outs, so don't wait until the last minute to get your tickets.
