• St Magnus International Festival, Orkney

Festivals

We enjoy a good festival in Orkney. It’s a chance for the community to come together, while welcoming visitors who share a common interest.

Our busy annual festival programme includes the prestigious St Magnus International Festival – Orkney’s midsummer celebration of the arts – and the hugely popular folk music, science and storytelling festivals. There are also events covering wine, beer, gin, jazz and rock music, to name but a few, and even a festival devoted to North Ronaldsay’s famous seaweed eating sheep!
