The Robert Burns Tradition

In 1955, a group of Scots living in Tulsa, Oklahoma decided to form a Scottish Saint Andrew’s Society, calling it the Scottish Club of Tulsa (S.C.O.T.). The first known Oklahoma Burns Supper occurred on January 25, 1956. This annual event went unabated until the scheduled 66th Burns Night event, which had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The S.C.O.T. Club now holds its formal Commemorative Supper honoring the Scotland Bard in the Tradition of the 9 who gathered to commemorate his death. Don your Scottish Best and come experience a Robert Burn’s Tradition unlike any you have ever attended.

Robert “Rabbie” Burns

A Burns Supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns (January 25, 1759 – July 21, 1796), the author of many a Scots poem and song. Robert Burns is global writer whose life and work have given rise to a global cultural phenomena – the Burns Supper. At the heart of this celebration of Scotland’s national bard is his word – from poetry to song.

This Year’s observance, being held on July 13, will be the 224th anniversary of the very first Commemorative Supper. Now, that is phenomenal. While the rest of the world is celebrating in January, the premiere Scottish Club of Tulsa holds this Original Tradition.

This year’s Commemorative Supper will follow in the Tradition of the Nine, and The Ceremony of Seven Toasts will be given. “Fire the Cannons!” The toasts will be directed by Silver Thistle Award recipient David Wilcox. There will be a social hour prior to Announcements and Introductions with plenty of Wait Staff on hand. Following the Commemorative Supper, Club Awards will be presented, as the Council recognizes those Members who help make a difference for the S.C.O.T.

The Supper’s main course, “The Haggis” is homegrown in Oklahoma and prepared by our very own Master Butcher, Vice-President Brad Cecil. When you purchase your ticket(s) we request that you make your entree choice for this year's event. Seating is limited to One Hundred purchased tickets. Get yours now before they are gone!
