Welcome to TamFest

Tamfest is a unique celebration of Halloween and Heritage as the spirits of Ayr's past come alive for a weekend of fun and frights; drawing on Robert Burns' infamous 18th century epic 'Tam o' Shanter' for a uniquely Ayrshire twist.

Ayr has a rich and fascinating (if not rather spooky at times) history, making it the perfect place to celebrate Halloween with lots to do and see for all ages. The festival boasts markets, tours, haunted houses, children’s crafts, music, food, a finale procession and more - attracting thousands of locals and visitors to Ayr Town Centre annually.
