7th Annual Robert Burns Supper – 2/1 – Missoula, Montana
Welcome to the 7th Annual Robert Burns Supper brought to you by Burns St. Bistro & Montgomery Distillery.
A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796), the author of many Scots poems. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet’s birthday, 25 January, occasionally known as Robert Burns Day (or Robbie Burns Day or Rabbie Burns Day) but more commonly known as Burns Night (Scots: Burns Nicht).
Burns suppers may be formal or informal. Both typically include haggis (a traditional Scottish dish celebrated by Burns in Address to a Haggis), Scotch whisky and the recitation of Burns’s poetry. Formal dinners are hosted by organisations such as Burns clubs, the Freemasons or St Andrews Societies; they occasionally end with dancing when ladies are present. Formal suppers follow a standard order.
This annual event is near and dear to the hearts of the BSB staff and we are excited to bring it back with the help of Montgomery Distillery, as well as members of The Celtic Dragon Pipe Band & The Missoula Highland Dancers, who will be providing entertainment throughout the evening.
***For 2019, the location of the supper will be at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts.***
Doors are at 6pm, with dinner beginning at 7pm sharp.
