Events in Inverness 2020 - 2021

Usually in July and August, there are various events for tourists in Inverness city including performances of Highland Dancing and the Inverness Legion Pipe Band, as well as live music in the pubs - but unfortunately for 2020 these won't be taking place. Likewise, the Highland Games have been cancelled this year, but we're hoping events will be back on track for 2021.

The Farmers' Market is usually held on the first Saturday of each month, with stalls of local produce (meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, cheese, homebaking, plants, crafts) in the Eastgate pedestrian area of Inverness city centre.
