Stirling Traders Village

Highland Games Overview

Stirling Highland Games continues to attract thousands of visitors from around the world to our annual event in August.

Stirling Highland Games is a destination event for visitors to come and enjoy an authentic Scottish experience in one of the most historic cities in Scotland, steeped in history, and full of culture and heritage. If your product can add value to our Traders Village event experience, we would be interested in receiving your EOI application.

The majority of last year’s visitors to the event were from the UK, Europe and the Rest of the World. Our visitors are interested in seeing and buying quality produce and products directly from the people that make them as well as hearing about their provenance.

If you wish to be part of the day and believe you can help provide that positive visitor experience we are aiming for, we would love to hear more about what you offer! Check out more details below to see which part of our event your business could be part of.

Be Part of The Traders Village Experience

Thank you for your interest in being one of the traders at the Stirling Highland Games on Saturday 17th August 2024.

We are looking for applications from suitable Market Traders [arts/crafts/business], Activities Challenge [sports clubs or sports business], Food & Drink Traders [Artisan Food or Drink producers] and Craft Brewery and Distilleries. Successful applicants will be allocated an outdoor trade space within the site. Our aim for you on the day is to help maximise customer dwell time and encourage engagement, giving you the opportunity to promote your product.

We are looking to appoint a diverse range of quality traders so as to showcase the widest possible choice to our visitors. We especially want to hear from traders that can tell our visitors about how you source and produce the products you create. As such we encourage traders to apply from Scottish Arts and Crafts, Scottish food and drink producers, Scottish Clans and local sports clubs or associations with a view to appealing to both a Scottish audience as well as other visiting nations.

We will be carefully selecting our traders to ensure our visitors take home the best quality and variety of Scottish products and priority is given to traders that uphold the principles of our event ethos.

We would recommend that Traders should offer a variety of payment options, giving you more opportunity to generate income. Please note we do not provide a wifi connection on-site.

The event is delighted to once again commit our support to our organisers, our chosen 3rd Sector partner who inspire young people into tourism through their training academy programmes. As such the Committee is not looking for EOI applications from other charities, social enterprises or voluntary organisations but you can contact us and ask for more details about our 3rd Sector marketing package.
