Traquair Fair 2015

Traquair Fair Returns with an Americana Theme!


Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd August 2015.

11am – 6pm (music until 8pm).

Traquair Fair will be returning in 2015 with a spectacular Americana theme. One of the Borders’ most popular events, the fair is staged on a bi-ennial basis.



Following on from a 1960’s theme in 2013, this year the fair will highlight all things American. With a great line up of music including Country, Bluegrass, Folk and Roots, as well as workshops in Jive Dance and Line Dancing, the fair will be jumpin’ and jivin’ throughout the day.

Wild West Entertainments, high quality street theatre and shows will take place in front of the house, while by the maze the ‘Children’s Area’ promises to be a mix of theatre, workshops and activities with an American theme.


A grand display of classic American cars and bikes will be on show and enthusiasts invited to bring their vehicles along.

In the house, there will be live showings of classic American movies throughout the weekend, from James Dean to Classic Westerns.


On the avenue and in the garden there will be teepees and therapies, food, crafts, vintage clothing and accessories.
