What's On Fort William & Lochaber Events

For William annual, indoor, outdoor, sports and musical events throughout the year.

Each year, lots of hard-working and enthusiastic people organise all sorts of events in the Fort William and Lochaber area. These include our annual events, lots of outdoor events, many which are great spectator events, musical events and dramas, sports club events and competitions and a large variety of hotel entertainment events. The Nevis Centre is one of the main venues for indoor events, including car boot sales, record sales and live entertainment in Fort William.

We are working hard to develop a comprehensive list of events and activities in the Fort William and Lochaber community area so you can think about going along, helping out or taking part. 

If you are looking to visit Fort William, we hope you find something of interest. If you are looking to bring an event to Fort William, or if you are a local event organiser, then you can register with this website - so are know who you are, and then create a new event listing.

Just some of the events in this area: Several Highland Games, world-class Fort William mountain biking events, three sailing regattas, many large charity and fund-raising events in Fort William, Hogmanay extravaganzas, Music Festivals, Scottish Six Day Trials, The Ben Race and many more.
