Huntly Hairst - Food Festival: September 2nd 2017

A celebration of local food

Last year's Huntly Hairst was another great celebration of food and local producers over the first weekend in September and we are delighted that we are working on a bumper event for 2017. We expect  to have a great programme for the Saturday in the Huntly Square, centred around the Farmers Market and the Room to Run event ( and also events on the Sunday and other days leading up to and following the Hairst weekend. In particular, we are joining with Huntly and District Development Trust (HDDT) for some exciting events at the Greenmyers Farm on the Sunday.
For 2017, along with the usual World Stovies competition, we will have a Harry Potter theme to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first book.

The Hairst aims to continuously develop and to embrace the cultural aspects of the town to celebrate local food and rural life. We are always looking for new events to add to the programme and are proud of our links to the Scottish Food Fortnight.Our website is under continual development; more information is being added regularly. If you don't find what you are looking for please bookmark this page and return shortly.  You can also find us on Facebook where we encourage you to link to the page which will keep you up to date with developments.

We look forward to welcoming you to Huntly for the Festival in September.
