Matta Fest 2013 May 5th

Sunday, May 5th from 11 to 4, head down to beautiful Dunvegan to celebrate the coming of spring at Matta Fest!  Take part in drumming and dancing, buy jewellery, scents and art from local vendors, and watch artistic and energetic demonstrations.

Matta Fest is about celebrating spring!  People come to sit in the sun, to dance on the new green grass, and afterwards peruse the flowers at Dunvegan Gardens.  The enchanted Dunvegan Valley comes alive with music, movement and colour.  The fun and spectacle culminates in the braiding of the Maypole.

Matta Fest has been celebrated at Dunvegan Park for over a decade.  In previous years, visitors have enjoyed hula hoop, Zumba, belly dancing and Tai Chi demonstrations, circle dances for everyone, children’s crafts, a meditation tent, and musical entertainment.  That’s besides the sheer beauty of the park itself.  If you want to know what’s going on this year, make sure you get to Dunvegan on Sunday, May 5th!  Happy spring, everyone!

A lot of people have been checking Town Spirit for word of Matta Fest.  If you have an event you want to make known, why not advertise on Town Spirit?  You can include pictures, links to websites, and a spot on the ‘front page’.  And all for free!  Just email
