ScottFest 2022

ScottFest is back for 2022 with a weekend of fun for all the family.  

Join us on the 12th, 13th and 14th August 2022 for this exciting family festival in its second year, with the return of crowd favourites including jousting, falconry, live music, food and drink stalls and much more. 

Sir Walter Scott is the most influential historical novelist in our history and his best-selling works brought over 600 years of history to life. Explore his legacy in a fun-filled festival of living history, re-enactment, music and dance with something for all ages.

ScottFest will be open 10.30am- 5pm on the 12th, 13th and 14th August. See our Friday ScottFest Programme and Saturday and Sunday ScottFest Programme for more event details.

Book your tickets online now or when you arrive.
