Opening day excitement and the festival kicks off with local pubs and hotels open for tune and song sessions from 3pm. We then open the event formally at the opening night concert at the Festival Marquee, Creebridge House Hotel, 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!
Event announcements coming soon!
The 6th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will take place over 12th-14th July 2019 and, after another outstanding programme of events in 2018 which saw us hosting Scottish Highland Dancing competitions and, as ever, some of the biggest names in traditional music, it looks set to be another packed programme and is really living up to it's reputation as one of the best rural arts festivals in Dumfries & Galloway.
