Dumfries Market Festival
The Guild Dumfries Blog

The GUILD will be

a uniquE creative community space in the heart of Dumfries


Where people can meet, work, create & collaborate, with a strong ethos of encouraging participation & social inclusion. 

A place for ideas, imagination, making & possibilities.


THE GUILD DUMFRIES are a not-for-profit social enterprise, managed for the benefit of the community rather than for an owner or shareholders, where profits are re-invested into developing the types of facilities, projects, events, activities and opportunities our community and town needs.


We want to reclaim a property in the heart of Dumfries town centre and make it a true community asset. An indoor community space offering multiple, affordable, rentable retail concessions as part of a collective of local makers, producers, artists and independent businesses providing a town centre presence with minimal overheads. In addition, we will provide studios and co-working space for creative freelancers, a community kitchen, modern craft and creative business workshops plus a bespoke events venue.


The Guild also produce a monthly curated street market festival. DUMFRIES MARKET FESTIVAL is a destination event, a unique and interesting experience to promote a sense of community pride, social interaction and we hope will play a part in the regeneration of Dumfries town centre. It provides our community of makers, creatives and producers a platform to showcase their products and services to potential customers.
