Weave Festival and Sma’ Shot Day

Saturday 7 July, 2018

This popular multi-arts festival celebrates Paisley’s rich history of weaving and radicalism, encapsulated in the famous victory of the town’s weavers in the historic sma’ shot dispute.

Relive the legendary day with the Sma’ Shot parade, burning of the Cork, outdoor performances, ‘doon the watter’ family fun, live music, weaving demonstrations, makers’ market, aerial shows, circus skills, workshops and a poetry slam.

This is a great day out for those interested in the arts, weaving and history plus families looking for a fun-filled afternoon.

Celebrate Paisley’s unique culture, radicalism and wonderful weaving heritage.

A full programme will be available soon.


The famous Sma' Shot dispute

I regularly visit the Paisley Museum and Art Galleries and Paisley Arts Centre and try to attend as many of the festivals and events in the town as possible... I particularly enjoy Sma’ Shot Day.
