Drumlanrig Christmas Fair

Friday 1st December, 4pm - 8pm & Saturday 2nd December, 11am - 5pm

Christmas Shopping

Celebrate the start of the festive season in style at Drumlanrig Christmas Fair. Set against the stunning backdrop of the castle, which will be lit up majestic green, the fair will play host to a fantastic Christmas market, with plenty of stalls featuring festive food and fare. We will also have Christmas trees and yuletide wreaths available.

Activities & Entertainment

An abundance of exciting Xmas activities awaits you, including a children’s art competition, with the overall winner having the enviable honour of switching on the Christmas lights. The Kid’s Christmas Gardens Trail is also sure to be a big hit with your little ones. And who could forget Father Christmas? Santa Claus will be making a special visit for all the good boys and girls!

And there’s more! On the Friday evening, Nithsdale Choir will be getting us all into the Christmas spirit with performances at 6.15pm and 7.15pm. Blackstone Clydesdales will be making a special appearance for rides on the Saturday.

We’ll be holding a Santa Dash on the Saturday, which will run (pun intended) from 11am on the Saturday. Visit our Santa Dash Fun Run event page for more details and to register.

Winter Warmers

The tearoom will be offering delicious warming soups, turkey and stuffing baguettes, and plenty of sweet treats including mince pies and shortbread, and much more. Hot drinks will include classic Christmas options including mulled wine gingerbread latte, cinnamon latte, and hot chocolate & marshmallows.
