What is a Blue & Gold Banquet?
Most Cub Scouts celebrate Scouting Anniversary Week in February with a “birthday party” called the blue and gold banquet… It brings families together for an evening of fun and cheer. It’s often the pack meeting for February. At Pack 95 we hold our Blue & Gold Banquet the first weekend in March!
Blue & Gold banquets are a tradition within packs, celebrating the leaders and parents who volunteer to make Cub Scouting fantastic. Sometimes former pack members return to Blue & Gold banquets. Often special Scouting or community leaders are invited to attend or speak to Cub Scouts in attendance. We also use the banquet as a chance to celebrate the accomplishments of the Scouts, themselves. Some Packs use a pack meeting to host a Blue & Gold banquet but host an entire separate event. One misconception is that blue and gold banquets are intended to celebrate the Boy Scouts of America’s birthday (Feb. 8). And while the BSA’s birthday may be an additional reason to host the banquet, the theme of the day is celebrating the Pack’s anniversary and everyone involved in making Scouting possible for members of the pack. Blue & Gold banquets, from small to large, bring on creative decor, exciting entertainment, and delicious food!
