Winter Festival

24th October 2019

Share a wintery family day out


With all the beautiful colorful leaves all falling fast, only means one thing... Winter is fastly approaching!! but it doesn't stop here for Oban, we have plenty to keep you enjoying your holiday in the winter. 

The Winter Festival is just around the corner, with more than 100 events in 10days. From markets to parades, there is something for everyone to enjoy on a wintery day out. This is Oban's 9th year hosting this event, bringing in more and more tourists to sample the culture and celebrations that the community of Oban brings together to enjoy. 

Each year they do different themes, to make it unique and fun, bringing to life the dreary dark nights. so this year's theme will be "Frost and Fairytales". This gives not only the tourists but the local shops and businesses a boost they need to keep the cold months going strong.

This great experience kick starts on the 15th of November, with a reindeer parade joined by the pipe band through the town. If that doesn't excite you, then why not try the Winter Woods - a guided tour through the illuminated enchanted forest. Or if you just want to do a bit of Christmas shopping, seize the opportunity now, with unique goods for your loved ones, such as the famous game of thrones whiskey distilled in the Oban distillery. 

The night owls and party goers, some whiskey or gin tasting is held for longer opening hours and to finish the night - live music will be held at the view and the local pups, keep an eye out to see what bands they have performing. There really is something for everyone to enjoy.
