I’m a little late with this event – but luckily it’s still going ! Stockfest, a week long festival celebrating the village of Stockbridge in Edinburgh and the surrounding community, returns in 2015 for its 4th festival between the 12th and 2th September!
The brainchild of Stockbridge Traders, Tannis Dodd and JoJo Hernandez, follows on from the success of previous years and one day festivals in the area. Spread over the week of Saturday 12th – Sunday 20th September, the festival involves local traders, community groups, schools & residents and as ever the 2015 programme will not disappoint!
Stockfest Committee organised events return including: StockFlea – an UpCycling and Vintage Flea Market.. StockDog – a mini ‘scruffs’ event to be held in Inverleith Park.. StockDish – where Stockbridge Chefs go head to head with their culinary delights.. a Party to thank everyone, business and residents, for supporting Stockbridge & shopping locally!
Highlights for the rest of the week include Guided Walks through the area, Taster Sessions in Zumba and Swing Dancing at LifeCare on Cheyne Street, Book and Poetry readings plus a Local History Talk at Stockbridge Library, Live Music and Shopping Discount Evenings throughout the area and even a WW2 themed Community Celebration.
Check it out – the StockDog on Sunday 20th looks especially fun !
