Robbie Burns Supper
The tradition of having a Burns Supper started in 1801, just five years after his death. Nine men who knew Burns celebrated dinner in Burns Cottage in Alloway, Scotland to celebrate his life and works. The dinner focused on a good haggis, recitation of his poetry and singing of his songs to toast the memory of their friend and hero.
The group met again, this time on his birthday, January 25th. Little did they know that it started a global tradition known for its celebration of Robbie Burns and Scottish heritage in general.
Each January, The Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band arranges a dinner in his honour, following a traditional Burns Supper of music, poetry and memories of Burns.

On the Saturday closest to Burn’s birthday, (January 25th) the Kincardine Scottish hosts the Annual Robbie Burns Supper at the Royal Canadian Legion on Lambton St in Kincardine.
This event starts at 6pm (doors open at 5:15pm).
Tickets will be available in late December at The Playful Piper, 775 Queen Street, Kincardine, Ontario.
We look forward to seeing you there!
