This memorable evening of Scottish heritage festivities will be held at the Center’s Educational Complex (70 Hiddenite Church Road in Hiddenite.

Born in January of 1759, Robert Burns was one of the most celebrated poets of all time. Burns, a poet and lyricist, is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland

and was a pioneer of the Romantic Movement. Many of his poems and songs such as the classic “Auld Lang Syne,” are still performed today. The Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center’s Burns Night festivities will feature many of Robert Burns’ works of poetry, which have been set to song. To celebrate his birthday, guests are encouraged to dress in their tartans and plaids. 

On this special evening, the feaste itself is part of the performance and the grandeur of the event. After a Scottish welcome, guests will feast on a traditional Scottish meal, which includes: haggis, beef, shredded cabbage, pan haggerty, baps & butter, tipsy laird for dessert. 

A glass of wassail, a punch made with apple juice and spices, will be raised in a toast to the President, the Queen, the Lads and the Lassies. The entrance of the Haggis, graces, and a closing toast to the immortal memory of Robert Burns, are among other festivities of the evening. 

Throughout the evening, guests will be entertained with a unique blend of traditional Scottish tunes from Studio 3. The non-profit music school serves Alexander County with affordable and professional music lessons for adults and children. They offer ongoing weekly rehearsals in a variety of music styles in the Studio 3 Music School Auditorium in downtown Taylorsville. For full details visit
