Opening day excitement and the festival kicks off with local pubs and hotels open for tune and song sessions from 12noon. We then open the event formally at the opening night concert at the Festival Marquee, Minnigaff Playing Fields, Minnigaff.

Please ensure that you book early for the ticketed concert events. We have some fantastic entertainment this year and a couple of really nice surprises at the venues; please don't miss it!

7th annual music festival

The 7th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will now take place over the 9th-11th July 2021 following the Trust's decision to re-schedule this year's event due to Covid-19. We are in negotiation with the artists booked for this year and hope to secure them all for 2021, plus a few extra surprises, so we'll be back with another packed programme of traditional music and dance next year. We hope you'll join us.
