Kirkcudbright Grand Parade

20th August 2022

Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

We know everyone loves a parade with a chance to admire and applaud the floats, wave their flags, march and dance along with the bands. Better still, this year there will be activities for the children all day from 10am including face painting and inflatable castle and slides and music for everyone on the Harbour Square stage before and after the parade.

Led by this year’s Princess, her consort and attendant in a beautiful vintage Alvis, there will be decorated floats, samba music, stilt walker and juggler, horses with riders in costume, wind and pipe bands, vintage vehicles, blood bikes and much more to delight and entertain the crowds gathered along the route.

Judging will be done by visiting tourists who will be looking to select the most entertaining entries to give out the cash prizes. The Kirkcudbright Summer Festivities committee is encouraging all groups and local businesses to put in an entry to make the judging as tough as possible for them.
