It’s time again to celebrate the birth of Scotland’s national poet—and SFU’s own Scottish legacy—at the university’s annual Robbie Burns Day celebrations on Monday, Jan. 25 at all three campuses.

Festivities begin at the Vancouver campus with a 10:30 am procession outside Waterfront Station and a program at 10:30 am in Harbour Centre’s Teck Gallery.

Join the Burnaby procession at 12 pm in the Strand Hall lobby for the program at 12:15 pm in Convocation Mall. And don’t forget to stay for Gung Haggis Fat Choy, a fun meld of Chinese New Year and Burns Day festivities, with dragon cart races, haggis and egg rolls.

The procession continues in Surrey at 2:45 pm at the Surrey Central SkyTrain Station for the final program at 3 pm at Dale B. Regehr Hall, Surrey campus.

Tickets are available for the annual Burns dinner and silent auction, Friday, Jan. 22 at 6 pm at the Executive Plaza Hotel in Coquitlam (604.669.2004 or

Easily the finest Burns dinner in Greater Vancouver, the event features the phenomenal six-time and current world champion SFU Pipe Band and the Robert Malcolm Memorial Pipe Bands.
