Edinburgh Art Festival


Founded in 2004, Edinburgh Art Festival is the UK's largest annual celebration of visual art. Uniquely, the festival offers the chance to experience the best contemporary Scottish artists in the context of exhibitions of the most important international artists and movements of the 20th Century and historical periods.


Attracting over 250,000 visitors each year, Edinburgh Art Festival brings together the capital’s leading galleries, museums and artist-run spaces, alongside new public art commissions by establised and emerging artists and an innovative programme of special events. The vast majority of the festival is free to attend. 


Edinburgh Art Festival is made possible through the generous support and sponsorship of a range of organisations.
