North Hop x Castle Fraser : USA Roots
August 31 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm BST
Where better to host a full-blown American themed festival but in an impressive events field in the grounds of an even more impressive castle, in Scotland!
On Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September we’ll be channelling our inner Outlander vibes and bringing in a whole host of street food vendors, themed bars and market traders along with Scottish dancing, line dancing, beer pong and live music to let you all discover your USA Roots, in Aberdeenshire…
Expect lots of down and dirty cooking, soulful food, tiki cocktails, an overload of sugary goodness and all things tartan in the market traders area.
National Trust for Scotland castle tours available for a special discounted rate on the day, alongside a scavenger hunt for the kids and special ranger walks and activities around the grounds.
