Join us in this timely tradition this New Year as we partake in some of Scotland’s Hogmanay traditions. There’s no country quite like the small country of Scotland when it comes to bringing in the New Year. In fact, across the globe after midnight it is traditional to sing Scottish poet Robert Burns‘ “Auld Lang Syne”.
An integral part of the Hogmanay party, is to welcome friends and strangers with warm hospitality.
“First footing” (or the “first foot” in the house after midnight) is still common across Scotland. To ensure good luck for the house the first foot should bring with him symbolic pieces of coal, shortbread, salt, coin, black bun and a wee dram of whisky.
Step back in time for the Triad’s most famous party only a Scot can throw! Don your Scottish Kilt or evening wear for this illustrious event filled with Cultural readings, Celtic music, dancing, and a true culinary delight of Scotland. Prepare for the official Ode to a Haggis while enjoying an evening with old and new friends but not before finishing the night off with a resounding Auld Lang Syne and an official Ceilidh complete with Bagpiper and Scottish band, Barrowburn.
Conversations will always be doused with Scottish charm, wee dram, and you may just learn what makes Scotland one of the unique countries in the world. Silent Auctions throughout the night so be prepared with a full Sporran!
Doors open at 5:30pm.
Tickets are $37.50 per person. Each table seats 8 guests
