Kinross-shire Winter Festival

November and December in Kinross-shire is bursting with music, family activities, local talent and community spirit. The annual Winter Festival brings together community groups, local businesses and Kinross-shire Local Events Organisation (KLEO) to present a wealth of events for all tastes.

What's happening this year

Due to the obvious restrictions imposed as a result of the Covid epidemic this year’s Kinross-shire Winter Festival is severely reduced in size. Nevertheless, we are delighted to announce that some events are still going ahead. This year we are introducing three special routes that you can walk or cycle at your own leisure:  a poetry route with poems from writer Jackie Kay and other local poets around Loch Leven,  a story route around Kinross with Christopher Brookmyre, and a children’s activity trail through Kirkgate Park organised by local author Esther Kent.
Enjoy the great outdoors on your doorstep!

The Festive Market will this year take place on Saturday 28 November from 11am to 3pm at the Market Park (opposite Green Hotel). Please keep an eye on the KLEO website or Facebook page in case there are any last-minute changes.

For all the events this year: View the 2020 Programme: This booklet will be distributed door to door in Kinross-shire at the end of October/early November.
