Excitement is building as we gear up for Dunfermline’s Christmas light switch-on, happening on Sunday 19 November.
Get ready for a heartwarming dose of tradition and festivities as we bring back carol singers, bands, and pipers to serenade you through the city centre. You can also find the perfect present at the Artisan Craft Market on St Catherines Wynd. Kingdom FM will be rocking the High Street with headline act Cammy Barnes and support from Gavin Patrick, Dionne Hickey, and Billy Reekie. For those feeling a little more active, you can take part in the Rotary Club of Dunfermline's Annual Santa Dash through the city.
Looking forward to the day, Cllr James Calder, Convenor of the City of Dunfermline Area Committee, commented: "2023 has been a fantastic year for Dunfermline, let’s end it on a high and make this Christmas one to remember.
“Join us and Santa on Sunday 19 November as we light up our City Centre with some Christmas cheer.”
