There’s much more to FyneFest than beer, food and music – each year sees us continue our mission to offer a full range of entertainment for a full weekend of fun.
FyneFest 2019 Activities:
The Walkers Bar
12pm-4pm, Saturday & Sunday
Make the most of the beautiful festival site and surroundings with a leisurely one-hour walk up the glen to visit our pop-up bar for a well-earned beer and burger fresh from the BBQ. Open on both Saturday and Sunday, The Walkers Bar continues to be one of FyneFest’s most popular attractions – get on your feet, get some fresh air and clear your head for the evening with the walk to the old riverside bothy bar.
Remember, if taking your canine friend up the glen with you, they must be kept on leads at all times to avoid disturbing the farm animals.
FyneFest Pub Quiz
2pm, Saturday, Courtyard Bar
Flex your mental muscles with the biggest pub quiz in Scotland (maybe?), taking place on Saturday afternoon in the Brewery Tap Courtyard. Get a pint, get a team of four, get your thinking cap, chuck a quid each in the bucket for charity and join in with a chaotic afternoon of trivia. The winners will be crowned the champions and rewarded with a stack of tokens to use in celebration of their victory.
Claiming a table early is highly advised – every year the quiz hits capacity and it’ll be your own fault if there’s nae space left.
There will be a series of meet-the-brewers panels at FyneFest 2019, on both Friday 31 May and Saturday 1 June, taking place once again in the Top Barn.
For this year, we’re very excited to have teamed up with new publication, Pellicle, who will be arranging and hosting panels as part of their new publication – and for the first time, FyneFest panels will be free to attend, with exclusive beers available to attendees.
Champions League Final
7.30pm, Saturday, Courtyard
We can confirm that the Champions League Final will be screened in the Brewery Tap Courtyard from 7.30pm on Saturday 1 June. Tickets for the screening, in exchange for a small donation, can be obtained from 11am-5pm on Saturday from the Merch Tent – first come, first served.
The screening will go ahead in any weather and covered seating is limited, so bring a waterproof or umbrella, and we ask that (unless there’s extra time/pens) the Courtyard is clear by 10.15pm.
If you’re planning to watch the match, please keep in mind FyneFest is a family-friendly event and we’re keen to keep the positive vibes going, so please try not to get carried away!
All Weekend, Meeting @ Brewery Tap
If you’re looking to enrich your FyneFest weekend, why not joina guided tour of the Fyne Ales brewery? You’ll be shown around our state-of-the-art facility and given insight into the brewing process by an expert from the Fyne Ales team and get to see first hand how and where our award-winning beers are produced!
Tours take place across the weekend at regular intervals – you can buy tickets from the Brewery Tap or the Merch Tent during the festival.
10.30am & 11.30am, Saturday & Sunday, Main Marquee
Looking for a way to heal your body and soul after a big night on the dancefloor? How does a morning yoga session lead by an expert instructor sound? With mats provided and sessions designed for beginners, all you need to do is come along with an open mind and a bit of energy and 45 minutes of mindfulness later you’ll be back on your feet feeling right as rain and ready for another day of beer, food and music!

Stories While U Wait
All Weekend, Around The Site
The incredibly talented Petit Prance returns to FyneFest with his trusty typewriter, ready to write custom stories in exchange for a small donation. Give him a subject, a little bit of time and maybe a smile and he’ll type you something inspiring, creative and exciting.
Paint The Toon
Visit the Paint The Toon team in their tent near the Ticket Tent to get in the festival spirit and glam up your weekend with extravagant hair, beard and body art.
For the Wee’uns
All weekend, Kids Tent
FyneFest is a family-friendly weekend of fun, so we’ll be running a kids entertainment program to keep everyone amused, with a dedicated entertainer hosting a range of activities for wee’uns in their own yurt – The Kids Tent!
There’ll be a blackboard outside the tent with the schedule of activities – keep an eye out for the latest updates throughout the weekend.
Each evening from 6pm, the Kids Tent turns into a mini-cinema screening family friendly and kids classics through the evening.
Brewery Tap & Shop
It’s Sunday, you’ve got tokens left, we’ve got beer in cans and bottles for you to take home and drink away the sorrows of the best weekend of the year being over. Bring a growler and we’ll happily fill it with any of the beers pouring in any of the bars to help you spend any you haven’t lost.
Please note, all FyneFest and Fyne Ales merch will be down in the Merch Tent, so stop off their for Ts, hoodies, badges and stickers before you head off!
Be sure to stop off at the dedicated on-site shop selling a range of exclusive festival and brewery merchandise to get a souvenir of your weekend. You can also pick up tokens and get cashback (£1 fee) from the Merch Tent and pay via cash or card.
