Annual Unst festival set to return after two cancellations

UNSTFEST is the latest community event to signal plans to return this year as Covid restrictions ease.

The event will take place across the island from July 11-17.

More details about the events will be released in due course.

The last Unstfest, which features a program of family events, was held in 2019 before the pandemic hit.

Unstfest chair Karis Burns said this should be a big boost for the North Island.

“I’m really excited to see the return of Unstfest and can’t wait to have new events on the program and see tourists and Shetlanders making the trip to Unst for the summer,” he said. she declared.

“I know a lot of families from Shetland come in their motorhomes just for Unstfest.

“It’s also for all ages, so there’s a huge call for everyone to participate.”

It comes after The Cunningsburgh Show announced its return in August after similarly canceling twice.

Meanwhile, at the end of next month, the Shetland Folk Festival will finally have the chance to celebrate its 40th anniversary – although some changes are in place.
