celebrating 50 years

Kirkcudbright Summer Festivities

A charitable organisation responsible for a wide range of, mostly free, family events in our town


Kirkcudbright Summer Festivities formed 50 years ago, in 1971, with just 1 event. Now we are a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service winner, the charities equivalent to an MBE.

These days, Kirkcudbright Summer Festivities are a large voluntary organisation who hosts community events between March and October. Our events range from monthly events, such as Kirkcudbright Farmers & Producers Market and Kirkcudbright Car Boot Sale, to annual events, such as the Kirkcudbright Floodlit Tattoo which is the highlight of our summer program. You’re certain to find an event that you’ll love!
