Our food and drink focused festivals, Springfest & our Food and Drink Festival, will feature lots for foodies with more cooking demos than ever before, Loch Lomond Whiskies doing their expert tasting, an outdoor bar and we’ll have a huge range of food and drink vendors on site, including lots of delicious street food to enjoy as you browse.

And for families, we’ll have lots of fun stuff to enjoy, including rides, live music and children’s food and drink related activities.

Summerfest and our Christmas Festival are all about family fun and we’ll have lots of live entertainment on stage, rides, face painters, children’s entertainers, characters and lots of street food and market stalls – all creating an exciting child-friendly atmosphere and lots to keep them busy.


Continental Market at Loch Lomond Shores - 21st to 23rd April 23


Our markets are back this year on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month.  We’ll also have extra weekly markets during July until mid-August.

This year we’ll also have two continental markets coming to Loch Lomond Shores.  These will be here on the 21st to 23rd April and 11th to 13th August.  These three-day continental markets will feature lots of great world food and products that don’t feature at our usual markets and bring a wee foreign flavour to Loch Lomond Shores.



On the 6th and 7th May, we’ll be celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III with live entertainment, children’s rides, a weekend-long market, Royal ‘Guests‘, bunting, selfie-thrones and much more. Come along for some flag-waving fun!

Comic-Con Loch Lomond - June'23


Comic Con is always hugely popular each year and we love to see visitors get in the mood with their amazing costumes of their favourite characters.  Come and soak up the fun atmosphere, browse the vast range of all things comic-related and have a great day out on 10th and 11th of June and the 8th and 9th of July.


As befits our dog-friendly status, we’re delighted that our Top Dogs event has proved so popular with those who have a 4-legged family member!  Featuring competitions, exhibitions and all things doggy-related, these events take place on Saturday 20th of May and Saturday 14th October.  Come along and take part in one of the many competitions – from agility to best looking – there’s something for every dog.
