If you are looking for a kid-friendly festival next summer, Knockengorroch Festival has so much to offer families! Set in stunning scenery in the hills of Galloway, with an incredible musical line-up across eight venues, there is lots to explore for families and plenty of activities to keep children of every age occupied throughout the weekend.
A dedicated kids’ tent has loads of games, crafts and activities on offer. Kidding Around provides entertainment from 10am – 7pm the whole weekend, keeping children from 0 to 10 and older entertained with their crowd-pleasing charm, which includes face painting, jewellery making, parachute games, yoga, bubble games, paper aeroplane racing and puppet making!
Each year Knockengorroch places a special emphasis on family programming. In 2023 we welcomed the Barrowband who sing about, and give out, fruit and vegetables for the whole family’s enjoyment. Special activities such as Jukebox Bingo see all ages getting involved. Further workshops and activities include circus skills, fairy garden building, dream catcher making, toothpaste making, mud face painting, Gaelic singing, storytelling, puppet shows and more! The activities throughout the weekend lead to a children’s procession on Sunday where creations and skills can be demonstrated in a parade which moves across the whole site.
Our beautiful mountain riverside valley location provides an opportunity for the whole family to spend quality time with each other and connect with nature. Quiet camping is available up the river for those with young ones that like to get up early!
With children under 11 going free and under 16s less than half price, join us with all the family at Knockengorroch 2024!
