The Tweed Valley Forest Festival has been running since 2007 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.
Developed by the Treefest Partnership the festival is based around the Tweed Valley Forest Park with the beautiful market town of Peebles at its hub. Just 20 odd miles south of Edinburgh this popular destination offers a High Street with fantastic independent shops, hotels & restaurants serving delicious food and a countryside which is stunning to view and explore – especially in the golden glow of autumn.
Inspired? There’s plenty of fascinating forest fun to be had as Iain Laidlaw of the Treefest Partnership explains:
The Tweed Valley Forest Festival is shaping up to be a fantastic event packed with heaps of entertainment and activities for everyone. Our dynamic team of Treefest partners have pulled together to lay on a fascinating blend of indoor and outdoor events. Thanks to all the organisers, the festival should be brilliant so I’d urge everyone to join in the fun and get a real taste of the history and culture in this stunning part of the Tweed Valley.
