After two very successful years, The Huntly Hairst will be repeated for 2009 with a new format. This year it will start in September with a food festival which celebrates local producers, food and farming and end in November with the traditional Halloween festival.
The Festival commences on 5 September with a larger than usual Farmers market, continues at Huntly Mart on the 6 September and will end with the Halloween parade on 31 October and further related events on 7 November including a Continental Market. A number of competitions are being organised to run over this period.
Now in its 7th year, this unique festival celebrates the local harvest and Halloween traditions in the North East of Scotland. The 2009 theme 'Let there be Light!' will see the Hairst turn Huntly into a stage: illuminating the picturesque town with a light spectacle, lantern making and laughter!
