Tarbas

Welcome:

Once a year, around the birthday of Robert Burns, Poet Laureate of Scotland, our organization holds the "Burns Supper", which is held in honor and in recognition of said poet.

The 2022 Burns Night will look different, but our passion to celebrate Robert Burns is unchanged. The TARBAS Committee is committed to creating and providing an environment where our event patrons feel comfortable, but also free to enjoy the festivities.

The Burns Supper is our primary, annual event.  Seats are available to the public either through single seat or corporate table reservations.
