A Celebration of Local Food, Drink & Crafts in Eyemouth

Kirk Square Fair, now in its 6th year, is an annual, one-day event celebrating local food & drink, music and crafts – all that is unique, delicious and memorable about the Scottish Borders and the Berwickshire Coast, and in particular highlighting local businesses, people and produce.

Throughout the day there will be busking and musical performances by Eyemouth High School Pupils and a number of Cookery Demonstrations taking place in Splash on Harbour Road thanks to Dave Hodson of Food Punks fame.
