About

Dunbar Civic Week.

Dunbar Civic Week was established in 1970 to mark the 600th anniversary of the granting by King David II, King of Scots, of the Royal Charter creating the Burgh of Dunbar. The aim of Civic Week is to foster and encourage a sense of community within the town.Civic Week features the traditional elements of the Civic Parade and Crowning of the Civic Queen within an entertaining programme of events put on by the community for the community. The events reflect and celebrate the richness of our community life – its history, culture and people – and provide opportunities for the the community to come together and have some fun.

Legal Issues: please note that the Dunbar Civic Week Committee are responsible only for those events which we organise directly, namely: the Civic Parade, the Crowning Ceremony, the Fun Day, and the Harbour service. The other events in this programme are organised by their own local clubs and groups, who are in turn responsible for their own health and safety issues, public liability cover, risk assessments and the like.
