Haggis Basher's Ball and Burns Supper

January 22, 2022 will be the 21st anniversary of the Anchorage Robert Burns Supper in honor of Scotland's greatest poet, Robert Burns.  

It is the TARBAS Committee’s number one priority that all attendees experience a safe, fun and entertaining evening at the Burns Supper on January 22 as we return to our celebrations after last year’s COVID hiatus. Under no circumstances should you or your guests attend if you are experiencing symptoms or if you have been exposed.

Not unlike other large-scale social gathering events, proof of vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours of check in will be required for admission into the event’s ballroom.

This gala event, which has become one of the most popular evenings of the Anchorage social calendar, will include a fabulous four-course meal, Highland Pipers, entertaining speeches, and dancing!

Your company may reserve a corporate table for eight at a cost of $1,500 per table.  Tables are limited.  Your company name, or another name of your choosing, may be displayed at the table purchased.

Single seats are SOLD OUT.

Sponsorships are no longer available.

VENUE:   Sheraton Anchorage
DATE:      January 22, 2022

Festivities will begin at 6:55pm SHARP.
