St Ternan's Heritage Fair is supported by Banchory Community Council, Aberdeenshire Council.

It is coordinated by Banchory and District Initiative Limited.

St Ternan's Fair is held every year on the second weekend in June.  It revives the tradition of the St Ternans Fair Market held in medieval times, when vendors travelled to Banchory along the drovers roads and set up stall to sell their wares, with entertainment provided by itinerant musicians. The 1834 Statistical accounts report that St Ternan's Fair, the most ancient of the six fairs held in Banchory at that time, had around 400 stalls whereas the others had just a hundred or so vendors. It was also an opportunity for local people to sell their surplus goods or barter produce or items they had made. The modern-day St Ternan's celebrates our local culture and features a range of exciting events for both local folk and visitors.
