The coastal town gets frosty with a series of activities, films and light shows to celebrate the fluffy white season that carries the year to a close. There's even a chance Santa might stop by, when he gets a break from all that present preparation.
Now in its 8th 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, international and local performance acts, fire artists, crafts, pipers, parades and family fun. Enjoy events including the Golden Clootie Dumpling 2018, Best Shortbread Fingers Competition, Haggis Fest, Whisky Festival and the Reindeer Parade. There will also be St Andrew's Day celebrations and markets to browse.
