Edinburgh - The Festival City
Festivals - what Edinburgh does best. The Edinburgh Festival is a generic term used to describe the cultural explosion which takes place in the city in August each year. It is in fact made up of a variety of festivals and events including the International Festival, The Fringe, Book Festival, Military Tattoo, Jazz Festival and Edinburgh Mela.
Later in the year, the city comes alive during the Winter festivals which feature the month-long Edinburgh's Christmas and culminates with the world famous Hogmanay celebrations.
Spring time sees Ceilidh Culture, the Science Festival and the Film Festival providing the entertainment while the Children's Festival starts the summer with playful exuberance. As home to the most vibrant calendar of international festivals and events, you can be sure that there's always something to tempt you during a stay in Edinburgh.
