FyneFest is more than drinking and dancing – we offer a range of activities to enjoy while you’re staying with us in the Glen.
The activities below are from FyneFest 2023, but we’ll be updating the page over the next few months as we lock down activities at FyneFest 2024!
GLEN FYNE WALK
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 12pm-4pm Saturday, 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
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.
2PM, FRIDAY, COURTYARD
Cash bingo, FyneFest style! Hosted by the inimitable Elaine, we’re looking for lines and houses in the courtyard on Friday afternoon.
BYOD (Bring Your Own Dobbers).
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!
10.30AM, SATURDAY, MEET AT THE BREWERY TAP
Join our friends from Good Time Running Club for a 5km run from the Brewery Tap to the Walkers Bar (leisurely pace, run as much or as little as you like).
Cost of entry is a donation to Arrochar Mountain Rescue, who provide search and rescue for missing persons across Argyll and Bute.
The run is open to all ages, however children must be supervised by a parent. Runners will receive a can of beer (or soft drink for under 18s) when they arrive at the Walkers Bar.
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) if you need, but merch and tokens are card payment only.
If you’re looking to enrich your FyneFest weekend, why not join a 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 on Saturday and Sunday at 11am, 12pm and 1pm, places are limited!
4PM, SATURDAY, MAIN STAGE
Get your dancing shoes on and embrace some trade tunes with the FyneFest ceilidh, lead and called by the brilliant Rock & Reel from Oban!
Visit the facepainting team in their tent in the main arena to get in the festival spirit and glam up your weekend with extravagant hair, beard and body art.
BREWERY TAP & SHOP
It’s the end of the weekend, 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!
