The 30th Scottish Traditional Boat Festival in Portsoy

The ACE Winches Scottish Traditional Boat Festival returns on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 July 2023. This is the 30th anniversary of the event and a flotilla of heritage boats from across the country, will drop anchor in the historic harbour of Portsoy for a weekend of celebrations.

Upholding the north east’s maritime heritage, there will be a packed programme of entertainment including music and dance, the finest Scottish food and drink and demonstrations of age-old crafts, unique handmade items and gifts.

The festival will begin with our Big Gig on the Back Green on Friday 30th June 2023. More information will be announced soon, so keep an eye on our website and social media channels.

Be sure to set sail for Portsoy’s boat festival to be part of the magical mix!
