The Food Fayre will as usual be at the Wally Green but this year in a specially extended marquee so as to cope with increased interest.

The second Marquee on the Wally Green will also be used in a more active way as you can see in the section about music. Amongst other things it will feature Molly Muddle and the Sticky Kids Show.

The Adventure Land at Loch Soy was all the rage in 2006. Its most popular offerings are back and we have organised for several new and exciting ones. More ...

The ever popular fun run and half marathon will be a major feature on the Sunday. 2006 saw the largest number of runners we have ever had and we hope to have even more this year. More ...

This year we hope to have all the demonstrators actively demonstrating their various fascinating arts and crafts; and there will be a new venue (the Art Hoose) for artists in the bottom part of the last unrenovated building on the shorehead.

We will also be aiming for a more arts and crafts flavour amongst the various stall holders on the promenade between the two harbours.

And, as usual, there will be a non stop programme of activities on the harbour stage (it is being extended this year) and you may well bump into buskers and street theatre along the way.

The rich programme of concerts and ceilidhs at various venues are listed in music section.

Our various youth initiatives extend beyond the Festival weekend and are all mainly landside events. They include the music master classes and visual arts projects which are dealt with in the-arts section. They also include the sailing classes and the boat building project which are dealt with in the maritime section.
