Events

Always something happening!

There are lots of regular events in around Blairgowrie. 

The Strathmore & the Glens Community Market is held in the Wellmeadow on the 4th Saturday of the month from April to September. 

Local walking clubs organise walks for members and visitors throughout the year; The Blairgowrie Players present theatrical productions throughout the year; and the local football and rugby clubs have fixtures most weekends from September to May, where extra supporters are very welcome.

A little further afield there's a full race card at Perth Racecourse from April to October, and busy events programmes at both Scone Palace and Glamis Castle.

Annual Extravaganza!

There are major annual events, too.

The Cateran Yomp takes place each June and the Blairgowrie & East Perthshire Walking Festival every September.

Scone Palace hosts a number of major events, including the Scottish Game Fair in June, Potfest in July and Rewind, the '80 revival music festival, in August.

The Blairgowrie & Rattray Highland Games takes place on the first Sunday in September, and the town's literary festival, Bookfest, follows early in October, before the year ends in a burst of colour with the Christmas Lights, Christmas Fairs and the annual Pantomime.
