As thousands of people come to enjoy Piping At Forres 2018, the sixth and final year in which this event will take place in Forres, we are delighted to offer opportunities for  local businesses and organisations to demonstrate their excellence in food, drink, craft and other produce to both local and international visitors.


We are very grateful to all our sponsors and funders for Piping At Forres for their support, without which Piping At Forres would not be possible. A list of the sponsors, funders and supporters is available here

The event is run on a not for profit basis and the financial and other support of our sponsors and supporters makes a vital contribution to the event.

We are delighted to have had a good mix of traders for 2018, offering over 100 stalls, with both new and returning stallholders to Grant Park in 2018. A list of stallholders is available here.

Application for stalls at Piping At Forres 2018   closed on  31 March 2018.   Information relevant to stallholders  is available here.


Piping At Forres is run by Forres Events Limited, which is a not for profit organisation. The costs of running the event are significant and despite the generosity of our sponsors it is not feasible to offer discounted prices for stalls to all charities. However, as in past years,  the directors will nominate six charities to receive a stall free of charge in 2018. Charities wishing to apply for one of these stalls should complete the online stallholder application form, which includes an option to request inclusion in the list of charities for whom charges are waived.

We are pleased to have been able to help a number of local and national charities in this way, including:  2wit2woo Owl Rescue; Cantraybridge, CLAN Cancer Support; Elgin Youth Development Group, Erskine,  The Falconer Museum, Findhorn  and Nairn Fisheries Trust, Forres Community Woodland Trust, Forres Soccer 7s, Help for Heroes;  Keith Kilt and Textile Centre, Knockando Woollen Mill,  Moray Inshore Rescue Organisation, Morayvia, Moray Gaelic Group, Moray Sports Foundation, Poppy Scotland, Riding for the Disabled, Royal Air Force Association, Scottish Wildlife Trust and Speyfest.
