Nithraid this year will take place on Saturday 11th August, 2018. 

Nithraid is a community-led River Festival beside and on Dumfries’ River Nith. Starting off with a sailing race up river on the highest tide of the year, the race finish line is below the caul in the centre of Dumfries, where the Salty Coo awaits the arrival of the boats from the centre of the river Nith.

Join us on the Mill Green for a day of family fun with the Nithraid village of family friendly activities, food, and music.
