Tamfest is Ayrshire’s premier family Halloween festival. Rooted in heritage and inspired by the Tam o’ Shanter poem by Robert Burns, Tamfest is a festival unlike any other!

Since 2015 Tamfest has grown into an enchanting experience for the entire family. Each year a line from the epic poem is chosen as the subtheme to keep the festival fresh and offer new insight into the characters and explore the story of the Tam o’ Shanter.

Tamfest is Ayr’s spooktacular Halloween celebration with a Tam o’ Shanter twist. So join ghosts, ghouls and goblins in the town centre for a frighteningly good day out!
