Edinburgh Festivals

Theatre, comedy, musicals, literature, art exhibitions, dance, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and more. Edinburgh is famous for its five-festival peak period in August but did you know there are six more major festivals spread throughout the year too? The city also hosts festivals covering science, children's entertainment, film, jazz & blues, storytelling and of course, the lively Edinburgh's Hogmanay on New Year's Eve.
