Autum Speyside Whisky Festival 2009?

Postby corbuso » Sun May 10, 2009 9:03 pm

Does anyone have the date for the 2009 Autumn Speyside whisky festival? I was informed previously that it would be held on September 25-28, but I am looking for a confirmation.

As I wasn't able to attend the Spring festival I'm interested in this myself.


Cheers!

FYI, if you plan to attend to the Speyside whisky festival, please book your accommodation early, since most of them are already getting booked.

After a bit of searching I finally found a B&B in Elgin for the Autumn Festival (24th Sept. through the 27th), so what's on? And where can I find and book for the fall festival events?

Yes, I attended the '08 SOS Spring festival. I tried the official website Spirit Of Speyside Festive but the only thing it really mentions about the Fall festival '09 is results of the Fall festival of '08, which really doesn't tell me a lot. The events for last years (Spring) festival were posted well in advance. In other words, this isn't my first Rodeo.

Have I read your accounts of the festival? Not lately, need I?


Cheers!

Book quickly, since many events are already sold out.
I will be there on Sunday and Monday, before moving north.
