The Foxlake Outdoor Festival will be bigger and better in 2017, say the organisers. Following the success of last year’s inaugural festival, this year’s event takes place at Foxlake Adventures, Dunbar, in East Lothian, on May 20 and 21.

Foxlake Adventures are working in partnership with East Lothian Council to encourage families and individuals to go outdoors and begin their own adventure.

Many of the popular elements of last year’s event will return in 2017, including an exciting Pro Wakeboard Tour event, organised by Industry Wake Parks.

The Decades Music Stage will also be back with tribute bands spanning six decades of music. As well as top musicians, there will be a host of British entertainers on the Comedy Stage.

Children will love the Kids’ Zone including an inflatable village, a climbing wall and face painting.

Line up of family activities

The weekend is all about getting the family active outdoors, with the chance to try out some of East Lothian’s outdoor adventures such as wakeboarding, stand-up paddle boarding, an over-water rope adventure called the Foxfall Course and segways.

The programme continues to expand and organisers will continue to add activities in the coming months.

For ease of transport, there will be a shuttle bus service from Dunbar Train Station throughout the weekend, giving the opportunity for  visitors to use the rail links from Edinburgh and the North of England and leave the car at home.

Festival tickets

Tickets are available for each day(starting from £17 for an adult)  or the full weekend (£30). Children’s tickets are free.
