Scotland's Winter Festivals Funding programme is designed to support events that celebrate Scotland's three unique national days - St Andrew's Day, Hogmanay and Burns Night.
From toasting our patron saint on St Andrew’s Day on 30 November, to Burns Night on 25 January and Hogmanay in between, Scotland’s Winter Festivals are designed to celebrate the spirit and authentic traditions of Scotland’s winter season.
The programme aims to bring together communities and visitors from all over the world to celebrate Scotland’s heritage, traditions and modern culture through the best of Scottish music, food and drink, arts and entertainment.
EventScotland, part of VisitScotland's Events Directorate, manages the Scotland’s Winter Festivals event fund on behalf of the Scottish Government as part of its wider Winter Festivals Programme.
