Aviemore Folk Festival
Join us for the first annual Aviemore Folk Festival in December 2021.
Aviemore is a village situated in the Scottish Highlands, nestled in the far west corner of the Cairngorms National Park. A year-round resort, it is home to five of the UK’s six highest mountains, huge forests of ancient native trees, spectacular waterfalls and more wildlife than you can imagine.
It is also home to the Cairngorm Brewery, producing both traditional and more contemporary craft ale.
We can’t promise sunshine, or snow for that matter, but we can promise an incredible line-up, a warm bed with en-suite bathroom, delicious food, optional day trips, whisky and gin tasting. There will be indoor concerts, workshops, dancing, mulled wine, craft ale, bagpipes, reindeer visits, Christmas jumpers, secret Santa and even haggis.
Expect the same attention to detail and service that you already associate with a Costa del Folk Festival but with an extra sprinkling of magic. If you are thinking of a low-key sedate festival, forget it! Aviemore Folk Festival in December 2021 is going to be full of amazing experiences, superb music, festive activities and, above all, fun and friendship.
The accommodation has an option to suit everyone.
From the Morlich Hotel, which will be the festival hub and host the late-night bar, to the quieter option of the Highlands Hotel or the Aviemore Hotel or the chance to share with friends and enjoy one of the luxury woodland lodges.
For anyone not wanting to make their own travel arrangements, we have put together an inclusive coach package, travelling from Exeter with pick-up points en-route, allowing you to extend your stay either side of the festival.
See you there!
