The Hoy Hoolie is organised by a large number of community volunteers that work as a sub group of the Island of Hoy Development Trust.
The main body of the Trust is involved with community issues such as welfare, transport, energy etc. This means they have to consider the community as a whole, i.e. the population of the island.
The Hoy Hoolie group is able to take a different view and can try and create events that maximise the involvement of the community spirit by us working together to create something that we are proud to share with visitors.
The community bond is strengthened and extended to others that feel the same but are not resident on the island.
The Hoy Hoolie weekend happens every 2 years and is a celebration of everything else we have achieved in the years between.
The 2018 Hoy Hoolie is on Fri 27th to Sun 29th of July. Full details coming soon on the website
