Strathaven Gala


Looking for a fun filled family day out? Come to Strathaven Gala Week (Friday 6th - Sunday 15th June 2014), which begins with a range of activities including the raft race, model boat regatta, magic show and performances by the Strathaven and District Pipe Band, The highlight of the week is the Gala Parade on Saturday 14th June.

Enjoy the spectacle of the Gala Parade as the whole village turns out to line the streets and support children from local nurseries, schools, and organisations when they join with a cacoffany of floats and vehicles in the parade.

Follow the parade as it snakes through the streets and ends finally in Strathaven s magnificent George Allan Park. Give the kids a treat at the fair, riding on the miniature railway or splashing about in the boating pond. For the less energetic, there is a putting green or game of bowls, or simply a leisurely stroll around the John Hastie Museum to learn more about the history and culture of Strathaven.

Why not have a look at the gala programme and plan a fun filled visit to Strathaven Gala Festival.

Please note that for 2014 the Crowning Ceremony will be moved to the steps of the John Hastie Museum
