Over 20 Activities to try out for Free for all the family

A fun family day out to enjoy while wandering through the city centre.

Look out for our team of volunteers who will have an event map to hand, so you and your family can take advantage of offers from local businesses including places to eat and drink. We hope you have a memorable family day out in Stirling city centre.

Just turn up and have fun. It’s all free, healthy activity for a family day out.

The team at Go Forth Stirling have chosen activities for you to try that will appeal to adults and children of all ages so you can all come along and have a go at some healthy activities.

The initiative showcases more than 20 activities ranging from BMX and Skateboard Stunt displays by Team Extreme at Forthside to a Bungee Trampoline and Surf Simulator in the city centre.

The Festival, which runs from 12noon until 4pm, has been organised by Tony I’Anson – a member of the Go Forth Stirling team.

He said: “Part of our remit, as set out in the five-year business plan, is to organise events which encourage local people to come in and enjoy the city and attracts visitors from further afield.

“The Festival is targeted at families and invites them to enjoy a fun day which promotes the benefits of active, healthy living and showcases Stirling as a destination of choice for leisure, retail and dining.”

Go Forth Stirling Manager Mags Fenner said: “This will be a free fun day for the people of Stirling and its visitors and we’re looking forward to a great event.

 “Families can enjoy some time together trying out different fitness activities and it’s also an opportunity for local businesses to show off all the fantastic shops, cafes and restaurants Stirling has to offer.”
