TamFest Fringe

Over the last few years TamFest has grown more than we could imagine. Both influencing participation and increasing awareness of Ayr's rich and spooky history, as well as bringing the community and thousands of visitors back into the town centre.

TamFest 2017 promises to be an enormous success and we want local businesses to be part of it's incredible journey. If you would like to put together your own fringe event or have other ideas to be part of the festival then please get in touch! We want to create a festival that Ayr can be proud of for years to come and with your help we will see the return of a vibrant town centre and event stronger community!
