Gala Day: Saturday 3rd June 2023

The Gala will be bigger and better than ever this year! Following feedback, the funfair will include inflatables for younger children and will be open on both Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd June from 5-8pm.

The Gala begins, as is traditional, at the doors of Dollar Academy at 12.30pm on Saturday the 3rd where the Dollar Academy  Pipe Band will lead our ‘Person of Honour’, John Carnduff, and Gala King and Queen through the village to the Market Park.

Following the formal event opening at around 1pm, we will judge the fancy dress competition (the theme this year is Cartoon Characters) before enjoying all the usual games – coconut shy, splat the rat, lots of children’s competitive games and much more through till 4pm.

There will be a market in the marquee with lots of wonderful gifts/presents and a fully stocked bar.

Please support Dollar by coming along to this fun family event – it is wholly organised and run by the fantastic Events Team and every penny raised goes into making Dollar a great place to live.
