2017 Festival Dates

Next year's festival dates: 27 July – 27 August 2017. 

Edinburgh Art Festival is a unique celebration of the visual arts, delivered in partnership with the city’s leading galleries, museums and artist-run spaces. Over the past twelve years we have grown to become the UK’s largest annual festival of visual art recording over 320,000 attendances at 7 commissions, 45+ exhibitions across 40 venues throughout the city during August 2016. We return in August 2017, when Edinburgh will be celebrating 70 years of being the festival city.
