Be Part of the Festival

Festival Overview

Sruighlea [Sreee-lie] Stirling’s Summer Festival event has a simple aim of attracting 10,000 visitors to the event by 2020 and we want you to be part of the attraction.

The Festival has evolved from the success of the Stirling Highland Games event and so whether you are a highland games competitor looking for entry forms for Stirling Highland Games, a trader who wishes to showcase their produce or product, a performer that is looking to entertain at On the Fringe or an artist looking to play to thousands of music fans at The Sruighlea Sessions in the evening, you will share one thing in common to us and that is to provide our visitors with the best event experience we can.

Many of our visitors are from throughout the UK as well as overseas. They are interested in seeing and buying quality produce or products directly from the people that make them and most of them would welcome a chat about its provenance.

If you wish to be part of our day and can provide a great experience, then we would love to hear from you! Just complete the online form below.

Be Part of the Traders Experience

Thank you for your interest. Traders Information and Applications for consideration can be found below.

Traders will be allocated space within their respective areas, designed to maximise customer dwell time and encourage sales. We are seeking to appoint a diverse range of traders to showcase the widest possible choice to our visitors.

We especially want to hear from traders if you can tell our visitors about how you source, make and produce the products you have to offer. We will be carefully selecting our traders to ensure our visitors take home the best quality and variety of Scottish product.

The Foodie Festival walk around will be chaired by Glasgow Hereld food critic, Cate Devine again and celebrity Chef, TBC. We are looking at ways to engage more visitors with producers during the day which may include a direct chat or a tasting session with the producer. You don’t need to do this but we are always looking at ways to drive more business sales your way.

We encourage traders to apply from Scotland Food and Drink, Scottish Arts and Crafts, Scottish Clans and local sports clubs with a view to appealing to both a Scottish audience as well as other visiting nations.

Priority is given to traders that uphold the principles of FVSE’s event ethos.

Traders products should be available to purchase via cash, with traders encouraged to offer card provision too (please note Wi-Fi connection is not available).

Submission deadlines: First round applications approved on or before 29th March 2019. Second round applications approved on or before 28th June 2019.
