Oban Winter Festival 15-24 November 2019

There’s fun for all the family during this ten-day celebration of Oban’s unique culture and community with street parades, international and local performances. Sample the finest Scottish fare, take to the floor at a ceilidh and don’t miss fire artists, crafts, pipers and parades and so much more.

Now in its ninth year, Oban Winter Festival has grown to accommodate an extensive programme of events aimed at people of all ages. It is a ten day celebration of Oban's unique culture and community with street parades, reindeer, international and local performing acts, fire art, pipers, lantern parades and family fun.


Festival action takes place mainly in the centre of town and getting from place to place is very easy. Discover the great shopping, bars and restaurants that make this town tick, take a tour of the local distillery and sample local malts, or enjoy a relaxing coffee in one of our many cafes while soaking up the beautiful view of the bay. 


We can provide all manner of accommodation options for your stay here, from apartments in the town centre to hotels and intimate bed and breakfasts, and we can recommend some of the finest food and wine establishments that this town boasts - so why not come and join the biggest winter party in the West?
