Burns Night, the anniversary of the birth of Scottish poet Robert Burns, is celebrated annually around the world on January 25.   The tradition of the Burns Night Supper, first held in 1801 by the poet's close friends 5 year's after his death, still continues today.   

Burns is one of Scotland's most famous literary figures - best known for his famous and often humorous - songs and poetry.  He is regarded as Scotland's National Bard.  He is most recognized for his  works, such as Auld Lang Syne, which is often sung on New Year's Eve, and Scots Wha Hae, which has become the unofficial Scottish National Anthem.

Join us on in January 2018.  Festivities usually begin at 6 pm with a no-host social hour will be followed by the ceremonies beginning at 7 pm.  Our traditional Burns Supper includes entertainment including the Presentation and Address to a Haggis, which is very entertaining and quite theatrical, The Immortal Memory, Toast to the Lads and Lassies, pipe music and other musical entertainment.  Supper fare usually includes Haggis, Neeps & Tatties, Prime Rib, Salad, and Cranachan Trifle for dessert.  A Silent Auction is also be held with an opportunity to win some great prizes and support the Kern County Scottish Society in our upcoming Scottish Games. 

The affair is a great opportunity to break out your formal or semi-formal wear, celebrate and learn about Rabbie Burns, and become a member of the Kern County Scottish Society.
