Founded in 2004, Edinburgh Art Festival is the UK’s largest annual festival of visual art. We bring together the capital’s leading galleries, museums and artist-run spaces, alongside new public art commissions by established and emerging artists and an innovative programme of special events. The vast majority of the festival is free to attend. About

The Art Festival engages new audiences with the visual arts, supports artists to deliver ambitious projects and fosters rich debate amongst local communities about culture and heritage in our city.
