The event acts as a fundraiser for the internationally-recognized pipe band, which has played on stage with Sir Paul McCartney on three occasions and in 2018 performed in both Basel, Switzerland and Estes Park, Colorado.

Every year guests at the banquet that honours the legendary Scottish poet are treated to a prime rib dinner, piping, highland dancing, singing, a single malt whisky bar and the traditional toast to the haggis. Dancing to the The Earthmen until the wee hours of the morning always concludes the evening.

Tickets are $60 per person and can be purchased at Grapes 4 U at 5101 Ladner Trunk Rd. (604-940-9463), by contacting the band line at 604-940-5040 or the band email at

Highland dress is recommended, but not mandatory.
