Helensburgh Winter Festival – 2017 is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SC046881)


Street Market in Colquhoun Square

HELENSBURGH Winter Festival stallholders with their amazing array of fabulous festive goodies and gifts have made the Festive Street Market one of the biggest in Scotland, and 2017 is going to be the biggest and best yet! The stalls, mainly in Colquhoun Square, but now extending into West Princes Street on both sides of the square, offer a dazzling array of amazing gifts and goodies as well as delicious street food from many cultures, some charity stalls and other delights like face painting and fun games. The stall holders come from all over Scotland as well as many from Helensburgh and Lomond and we have kept the booking fee down to a very low £60 for both days.

Our 2017 Stallholders.... We will continue to add to the this list as everyone confirms over the next couple of weeks.
