Guide for Event Providers

The Moray Way Association works with over 20 organisations and individuals to create the Moray Walking and Outdoor Festival programme.

Would you like to join us?

We are always looking for new providers at add to the breadth of the programme, both in terms of geographic spread across Moray but also in terms of increased variety of outdoor activities. We are also keen to include a range of indoor evening events, either informative and/or entertaining. Local organisations run their events to promote their company, charity or community group; to inform people about the area, to launch a new type of event and to raise funds. We all work together to promote Moray as a great place to enjoy the outdoors. From walking to cycling and history, wild swims to poetry walks, the programme includes a wide variety of events for all abilities and ages.

We are always looking for new events and if you would like to get involved please contact

The Moray Way Association can support you to develop your event and give training, advice and volunteer support when available. Providers enter their event details directly onto the website via the Submit an Event form. You should be familiar with the Booking Terms and Conditions which apply to both Providers and Customers.

The Forestry Commission has been involved with the Moray Walking and Outdoor Festival since 2012 and the programme has grown every year since then. The Festival gives us an opportunity to offer a guided walk of the hidden WWII history of Lossiemouth Forest and show a different side to this stunning coastal landscape.

Please note

Much of the organisation of the festival is carried out by volunteers. Even so, costs are incurred, eg website hosting, roadside banners, leaflets. In order to cover some of these costs, unless previously agreed otherwise, a 20% commission on every ticket sold is taken by the Moray Way Association. The festival is organised by the Moray Way Association, a registered charity and non-profit making organisation, and trustees operate in a voluntary capacity.


Circumstances beyond your control can lead to forced cancellation of an event, but the cancellation will normally be a last resort. Past solutions have included finding a ‘stand-in’ to lead the event or re-routing part of the event.
