Kirkcudbright Summer Festivities

Kirkcudbright is one of Scotland’s most vibrant communities with events, exhibitions and activities taking place throughout the year.

In the 40 years since Kirkcudbright Summer Festivities was born our vibrant programme of events and festivities has grown and spread its wings throughout the year.

From early Spring to the dark nights of winter, the Summer Festivities team of volunteers organise a uniquely varied programme of events, festivals and experiences.
