Saturday 30 July 2022

Festival Saturday is the climax of the Festival Week. A day where our community gathers to see the Honest Lad carry the Burgh flag around the boundaries of our town in celebration of a tradition that dates back many centuries.

The Official Party led by Chief Marshal, Susan Simpson will move off first from Balcarres Road making their way to Pinkie House for the traditional scroll presentation. At 09.00, they will ride out of the gates of Pinkie House to be met by the rest of the cavalcade accompanied by the Town Band, local councillors, guests and Border visitors.


This is the go to platform for Musselburgh Festival. Dating back to 1936, our week long annual celebration honours the traditions of our Town and brings our community together.
