The week is finally here and we are ready to welcome you all to the beautiful Highlands for our first ever Loch Ness Knit Fest! To help you get the most out of your festival experience we have put together a little guide to what you can expect on arrival, where you can find help and information during your time with us, and what you might want to do now to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the Knit Fest fun!
Arriving at Loch Ness Knit Fest
On arrival you will need to pick up your day/weekend pass, and any tickets for additional workshops, presentations or entertainments you have booked.

Registration and Tickets
The Helpdesk will be manned by the Loch Ness Knit Fest team who will be on hand to welcome you to the event and check through your booking with you. Please bring your registration confirmation to the desk to help us to quickly issue your day/weekend pass for the event and also give you any tickets for any classes/events that you have booked. (Tickets are available to buy on the day but you can make extra savings by booking your day tickets online.)
Our dedicated team will be on hand at the helpdesk to assist with any questions that you have throughout the festival, however, if you are looking to complete your Knit Fest experience by booking a workshop or presentation we advise you to do this in advance as some of them are now sold out.
