The Edinburgh Art Festival is the largest UK visual art celebration bringing over 250,000 art and culture enthusiasts together every year. The Art Festival showcases work from new public art commissions, artist-run spaces, museums and Edinburgh’s top galleries. This leading-edge programme features established and emerging artists and is sure to inspire and intrigue!

What makes it special?

  • The vast majority of the festival is free to attend, and includes free events, exhibitions, performances, screenings, artist talks and guided tours.
