Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Edinburgh’s summer comes alive every year as the city plays host to many festivals. One of the more popular Edinburgh festivals is the Festival Fringe. This long running festival is also the largest arts festival in the world.

From August 3rd to the 27th the city of Edinburgh is taken over by artists and performers of all shapes and forms. From comedians to street performers to children's shows and cabaret, everything goes at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Some of the biggest names in entertainment perform at the Fringe and many of these actually started their careers by playing here.

So whether you plan on buying tickets for some shows or just strolling down the Royal Mile to take in all the activities, a visit to Edinburgh during the Festival Fringe is the perfect time to check out this Scottish city.
