Little Dot Creations stall at the event last year

The Highland dancing competition and family fun day takes place at Minnigaff Playing Fields on Sat 13th July from 10am-5pm and includes inflatables, rides, entertainment and food/drink. Covered market stalls are available for £20.00 per stall or £15.00 per stall if you have your own gazebo/cover.

Whether you're a crafter, food/drink producer, local charity, organisation or community group or if you just want to run your own boot sale, we have pitches available for £15.00 per pitch or we can provide covered market stalls (pictured) for £20.00 per stall.  Stalls/pitches are free for charities and community groups.

We are expecting a significant increase in visitors this year as we have teamed up with the former members of the Galloway Pageant Committee to deliver, alongside the Highland dancing competition, a family fun day with lots to do for children and families.

Please contact Festival Director Nathon Jones on 01671 404924 or e-mail festival@tradmusic.com to book your place.

6th annual music festival

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.
