The Scottish Taiko Festival is a celebration of taiko drumming and Japanese culture, with a busy schedule of events on offer for the whole family to enjoy! The Festival will take place 28-30 April 2023, with a programme of events in the villages of Aberfoyle, Gartmore and Killearn - just west of Glasgow.


We feel very honoured and privileged to have Kenny Endo from the Taiko Centre of the Pacific, Hawaii, as our special guest for the first edition of the Festival. Kenny will be leading a series of workshops throughout the weekend and playing a concert on Saturday evening.

In order to attend any of the events on Saturday and Sunday, you will need to purchase a Festival Pass. This will give you access to a range of free events and activities on those days. 

However, there are additional events that have an extra cost, should you decide to attend those. Please check the Event Programme Page for a full list of activities. All events - whether included in your festival pass or not - require prior booking as there are limited spaces on offer.
