Planning your Blue & Gold Banquet

The Blue and Gold Banquet is a highlight of the year bringing together pack families for a dinner and fun celebrating the "birthday of Cub Scouting." It's called "Blue and Gold" because those are the Cub Scout colors. Blue represents truth and loyalty, and gold represents good cheer, happiness, and helping others. The purpose of the Banquet is to mark the organization of the Boy Scouts of America in February 1910 – Cub Scouts were founded in 1930 - and to celebrate the February 22, 1857 birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts.

Along with dinner, provide entertainment – skits and songs by the boys, or bring in entertainment like Amazing Arthur the magician, CAPOW the mad scientist or have Raptor Recovery bring in live raptors. Include the Cub Scouts in preparation, decorations and the program. However your pack celebrates Scouting's birthday, it will take planning and everyone's help. Google Blue & Gold Banquet to find sites with themes, skits, crafts and step-by-step planning.
