Scottish Traditional Boat Festival

This event has now passed. Visit our what's on calendar to view our current events.

As traditional boats congregate in the historic harbour, the seaside town of Portsoy celebrates with a festival of music, sailing, rowing and traditional crafts and art.

The Scottish Traditional Boat Festival at Portsoy in Aberdeenshire will shift from a physical event to a digital festival in June 2021 – with the backing of EventScotland as part of the Year of Coasts and Waters 20/21.

Innovative plans are being developed to stream a collection of bespoke video content to showcase the many facets of the flagship event which regularly attracts 16,000 to the North-east coastal town.

This virtual event will go live over the weekend June 26-27 and will be a taster offering music, dance, boats, crafts, food and drink highlights.

The virtual festival is supported by EventScotland as part of the Year of Coasts and Waters 20/21 as Scotland continues to shine a spotlight on these vital elements of our landscape.

Look out for details of how to log on to our virtual festival programme being announced soon.
