Edinburgh is a much loved and well visited city with a host of events, activities and festivities throughout the calendar year. So whenever you’re planning to visit make sure to check out what’s on and book appropriate tickets in advance for special events. A few annual events include the esteemed Edinburgh festival, New Year (Hogmanay) and Burns Night.
Edinburgh takes great pride in its ability to host spectacular festivals and there are dozens that run throughout the year, but arguably the best is what is known as ‘the Festival’ that runs across the month of June. Everything is covered from film and literature to music, art and politics, plus of course the legendary Fringe festival that takes place in locations all over the city, but the most popular spots are the Traverse Theatre and the Hub.
Hogmanay is a celebration rooted in tradition and involves a multitude of legends and customs that may confuse visitors at first, but all add to the fun and hype around the vivacious celebration! The three day event involves a stunning Torchlight Procession, a Keilidh, outdoor concerts, street parties and, of course, hundreds of fireworks to bring in the New Year.
Burns Night is so unique to Scotland and incorporates all the country’s most historic traditions in one night of entertainment to celebrate the national bard, Robert Burns, on the date of his birth, 25th of January. Expect to eat haggis, drink plenty of whiskey, and listen to rousing verse.
