Complete your convention experience by sharing in the fun, festivities, food, and excitement of the semi-formal closing event, the Red & Black Gala Dinner and Convention Awards. At only $23 per person/$30 for guests, you won’t want to miss this memorable opportunity to wear your Society colors and/or regalia. Join us as we revel in our English connections, savor new friends and old, and celebrate the best papers presented at the convention. This event is (literally and figuratively) the icing on the cake!

“’TIS not the food, but the content
That makes the table’s merriment.”
Robert Herrick, Content, not Cates

Gala Dinner


Please order Gala Dinner tickets when you complete your convention registration. The convention registration fee does NOT include the Red & Black Gala Dinner and Convention Awards. This is a separate $23 charge for convention attendees and a $30 charge for each guest not attending the convention.

Dress Code

For the Red & Black Gala Dinner and Convention Awards, members are encouraged to wear Society colors and cords and/or medallions for this semi-formal attired event.

Convention Awards

Each year Sigma Tau Delta recognizes excellence in convention presentations by awarding thousands of dollars in prize money. Perhaps your submission could be a winner in one of these categories. To be eligible for a convention award, presenters must give their papers in person at the convention (although one need not attend the Gala and Awards Ceremony to be eligible).
