Trading at Knockengorroch World Ceilidh 2017 (non-food)
25/26 May to 28 May 2017 at Knockengorroch, Carsphairn, Castle Douglas, DG7 3TJ
Terms and Conditions for trading at the festival and full info
This year we are offering 2 different costs for the 2 different trading areas:
Area 1 – stalls in the open air stage/down to the Longhouse area.
Traders in area 1 must arrive by 8pm Wed 24th May.
Area 2 – stalls in the Shieling area.
This area is close to the covered Shieling stage with live music followed by dance music late. There are also two more smaller dance music tents close to this area. There are a limited number of pitches in Area 2. If you apply for Area 2, your pitch will only be secured once payment is received.
Traders in area 2 will not be able to trade till Friday morning 26 May as this area will be barriered off to the public throughout Thursday 25th May. Trading pitches will consequently be cheaper. Traders booking area 2 must arrive by 8pm Thursday 25 May and be set up to start trading Friday morning. You may arrive Wed 24th by 8pm but cannot trade till the Friday.
