We are very pleased to welcome you to the 11th Anniversary of the Creetown Country Music Festival. Over the past ten years the Festival has developed into the largest Country Music Festival in Scotland. 

Here we are again, now with 10 years of Country Music festivals under our belts, ready to welcome you to our 11th Creetown Country Music Weekend. Whether you have visited us before or are new to the Creetown experience, we look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our guests from the UK and USA.

Over the years the people of Creetown have made many new friends during the Country Weekend. We would like to thank them and the many local business and community organisations that have helped to make every year a success.

 

Lastly but by no means least we would like to thank all our volunteers for the countless hours of time, effort and enthusiasm they have contributed to the festival for the past ten years. They have done a truly amazing job and we extend them our heartfelt gratitude.

If you are an old hand or joining us for the first time, a warm Creetown welcome. Have a good time, enjoy the music and have a safe and memorable weekend!

BY CAR

From Carlisle, take the A74 north as far as the turnoffs for Gretna and Dumfries. Continue west on the A75 past Annan, Dumfries, Castle Douglas, Kirkcudbright and Gatehouse-of-Fleet until you reach the straight coast road just beyond Carsluith. There are two exits from the A75 into Creetown.

Visitors from the Ayr, Girvan or Glasgow areas can take the scenic A713 down from Ayr through Dalmellington and across the moors to Casphairn, before taking the A712 for New Galloway and west down the Queen's Way to the A75. From there, head eastwards for about 4 miles to Creetown. Alternatively, the A77 from Ayr can be taken as far as Girvan before taking the A714 down to Newton Stewart, then left at the A75 roundabout and across the Cree Bridge four to five miles east to Creetown.
Visitors coming from Stranraer need only take the A75 eastwards to Newton Stewart and so towards the turning off the A75 for Creetown.
