Tarbert Music Festival

Featuring on the festival calendar for decades, the full music programme attracts tourists to the village from far and wide.

Award-winning bands Skipinnish and Manran have headlined the Quay in the past, while a wide range of musicians take stage in the hotels, pubs and restaurants across the weekend, creating a vibrant, buzzing atmosphere.

Relatively new to the programme in 2016 were Feis an Tairbeirt, who provided traditional music and dance tuition to 8-18 year olds. Their involvement will continue, adding to the variety of the event.

The Loch Fyne Viking Festival

This festival spans across Lochgilphead, Ardrishaig, and Portavadie, as well as Tarbert – which is rich in Viking history. Every second year, fancy dress and merriment are the order of the village and everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate!

Our resident Vikings re-enact the steps of Magnus Barefoot in 1093, carrying the Viking long-ship (hand crafted by locals) in procession from West Loch to East Loch.

Battle re-enactments take place at the castle, as well as archery lessons, skirmishes, stalls and music, and the recreation area transforms into a mock Viking village demonstrating historic techniques and crafts. The evening sees more music and dancing, fireworks and a spectacular display of shooting fire arrows.

Unfortunately this event has been postponed until next year (2023)
