Orkney plays host to many events and festivals throughout the year with opportunities to enjoy traditional, jazz, country and classical music.
The St. Magnus International Festival in June is Orkney’s midsummer celebration of the arts, featuring international artists, theatre, poetry and exhibitions.
Orkney has a very strong farming community reflected in the many agricultural shows that take place in early August.
The agricultural show calendar culminates with the County Show on the second Saturday in August at Bignold Park in Kirkwall, which is the biggest event in the Orcadian agricultural calendar.
