Oban Winter Festival


Markets, Fairgrounds, music, shopping, food & drink, we even have snow!

St Andrew's Day celebrations, Haggis Tasting Whisky Tasting, Ceilidhs Fun For All the Family.

Now in its 8th year, Oban Winter Festival has grown to accommodate an extensive programme of events aimed at people of all ages. It is a ten day celebration of Oban’s unique culture and community with street parades, international and local performance acts, fire artists, crafts, pipers, parades and family fun.

Festival action takes place mainly in the centre of town which means getting from place to place is very easy. Discover Oban’s great shopping, bars and restaurants that make this town tick. Take a tour of the local distillery to sample local malts, or enjoy a relaxing coffee in one of our many cafes while soaking up the beautiful view of the bay.

For those seeking more refined entertainment, there are various literary, language, cinema, music and theatrical events throughout the festival, offering a chance to learn, participate and celebrate our culture.

Should you choose to stay overnight in Oban to enjoy more of the Festival events there are various options for your stay, from top class hotels and apartments in the town centre to the many excellent bed and breakfast establishments.

So why not join the biggest winter party in the West.
