Why has the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival moved online?2021-05-25T15:23:47+00:00

The pandemic cast a doubt over our ability to safely stage a large crowd pulling event in June so rather than deprive fans of their annual feast of festival action, we have created an amazing digital alternative.

This year you can enjoy a taster of all things boat festival from the comfort of your own home – wherever in the world you are.

Ahoy Portsoy has been made possible through the support of EventScotland as part of the Year of Coasts and Waters 2021. We’ve also had sponsorship from Moray West Offshore Windfarm, Macduff Distillery and Ovenbird Coffee Roasters.

What festival highlights can I expect?2021-05-25T15:22:40+00:00

Ahoy Portsoy will feature brand new video content that showcases the best of Portsoy and the wider region, its coastline and community. There will be exclusive interviews, unique musical performances, crafts, dance, stories and stunning sea and coast scenes. It will be presented in bite-sized pieces allowing you to pick and mix what to watch and when.

Do I need pay for tickets?2021-05-25T15:22:45+00:00

No, this is a free event to enable as many people as possible to join us. However, we encourage viewers and supporters to make a donation to support which will support our work preserving and promoting our area’s rich maritime heritage.
