Come experience all the Scottish pageantry and tradition of this grand ball, a high point of the Washington social season. Set in the Mayflower’s Grand Ballroom and conjuring images of a more elegant era, this black tie gala dinner-dance event boasts a guided single malt scotch tasting, dazzling cocktails, Silent Auction, and fine cuisine served and featuring the Pipes and Drums, and Highland Dancers, of the St. Andrew’s Society. Attendance is open to all lovers of Scottish pageantry and culture!  This special anniversary we honor Mr. Thomas James Murray for his crucial role in the Tartan Ball's evolution over the years.
