Saturday 22nd - Sunday 23rd October 2022

We have very reluctantly decided to cancel this years’ ( 2021) Peebles Wood Market Festival. Apologies to all those who had hoped to attend as stand-holders, chainsaw carvers, greenwood workers, conker competitors and customers. It is especially frustrating as we had planned for a very special puppet to make an appearance this year.

We will be posting information on many of the talented makers here in the lead up to what would have been the festival weekend.

Please put the dates of the next Peebles Wood Market Weekend in your diary. Saturday 22 & Sunday 23 October 2022.

About the Tweed Valley Forest Festival

The Tweed Valley Forest Festival has been running since 2006 and has been attracting over 5,000 people each year from far and near to celebrate the connections with the area's Halloween customs and growing forest culture.

We are based around the Tweed Valley Forest Park with the beautiful market town of Peebles at its hub. At our annual event you will find skilled crafters at our wood market, demonstrations on Tweed Green including live chainsaw carving techniques and of course the Scottish Conker Championships. Find out more from the links below.
