This calendar is reserved for non-commercial community events. What does that mean? Your event must be free or of nominal cost, available to anyone (although adult-only events are fine), and not for profit (but we do make exception for artists showing their work who would profit from any sales made and musicians hosting small-scale concerts). Not sure if your event fits? Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to check, or go ahead and submit anyhow – submissions are moderated and we’ll approve yours if it fits our criteria. Thanks for helping make Huntsville a vibrant community!

Rabbie Burns Night
January 21, 2017 @ 4:10 pm - 11:55 pm$15
Rabbie Burns Night is celebrated downstairs at the Legion starting at 4:10 pm. on January 21 and includes dinner – cock-a-leekie soup, Scotch meat pie, haggis, of course, and Tipsy Laird, a trifle-like dessert – as well as much entertainment. The Cameron of Lochiel Pipes and Drums will be there with some rousing music along with some Scottish dancers. Traditional toasts and tributes will be honoured: the Immortal Memory, Address to a Haggis, a Toast to the Lassies and a Toast to Absent Friends. A few wee drams (Scotch Whisky) may be consumed. And there’s a special Huntsville tradition, too: the passing of a stone gathered from the shores of Scotland by Kareen Burns. It’s an evening of Scottish pride, but it’s open to all.
A limited number of tickets are available for $15 – and that includes dinner – at the Legion or Treasures and Trophies. Get yours while they last – they often sell out.
