1 Weekend: 2 Festivals
Organised by the Newmilns Regeneration Association, the Newmilns Festival Weekend was started originally in 2016 as the Newmilns Food Festival and has grown to include a second day with the Newmilns Arts & Crafts Festival.
Since its inception, the Newmilns Food Festival has enjoyed success year after year, with MasterChef The Professionals Winner and National Chef of Scotland, Gary Maclean, in attendance in 2018 and Celebrity Chef, Tony Singh, in attendance in 2019.
The Festival Weekend engages with many local food and arts & crafts producers as well as involving the local schools to encourage Community engagement.
Update (July 2020)
The Festival takes a year to plan, we normally go straight into it once we finish, but we had decided to move it out to May 2021, a decision we took prior to Coronavirus. Under the current situation, we do not know when a Marquee based Festival, which had over 2500 visitors last September, will be free to be held again. We have therefore released our booking for May 2021 with our marquee company and instead hope to be back on the first Bank Holiday weekend in May 2022.
