Little Town of Festivals

Welcome to Kingussie, the “Little Town of Festivals”

In the small Highland town of Kingussie, situated in the beautiful Cairngorms National Park, community groups have been organizing a number of successful annual events and festivals for many years, some of which are nationally recognized. These groups have decided to come together and create a calendar of unique and exciting festivals with one for each month of the year - turning Kingussie into “A Little Town Of Festivals”.

Kingussie reached the finals for a Creative Place Award in 2014 for this initiative, coming  runner-up to the Highland community of Helmsdale. 

For all the up to date news and developments you can follow us and chat to us on Twitter and ‘like’ us on FaceBook where we are building up a gallery of photos as the festivals happen, and listing lots of extra events and happenings too.
