We’re working on the 2017 programme of events, which promises to satisfy the Festival’s thrill seeking visitors!


Sports Village @ Loch Soy

Active Aberdeenshire is delighted to be working with partners to bring the Sports Village @ Loch Soy, with a range of fun activities to be enjoyed.

We have already confirmed that the Climbing Wall and the Zorbs will be at the 2017 Festival.

There may be a charge for some of the activities.

Grampian Leaders

Many of the activities, including the marshalling of the 10K run benefits from the help of our enthusiastic Grampian Leaders. The Grampian Leaders SportScotland Programme provides coaching and enhanced training and volunteering opportunities across Aberdeenshire for 16 to 24 year olds. The programme helps young people to develop their leadership skills and confidence. They are provided with opportunities to grow and learn while also supporting local sporting events and charities. If you wish to find out more about the programme, you can email the coordinator Susi at susi.mclarty@aberdeenshire.gov.uk
