Edinburgh  Today

Edinburgh Festivals

August 2004

Edinburgh has several Festivals each summer.  The original, over 50 years ago,  was the Edinburgh International Festival, now often referred to as the 'Official Festival'.  The Festival came to a finale on 5 September 2004 with a Bank of Scotland Fireworks Display and Concert,  from Edinburgh Castle and the Ross Bandstand in Princes Street Gardens.

The Festival Fringe developed as an unofficial collection of artists that came to perform in Edinburgh during the Edinburgh International Festival, but it is now highly organised, with a programme of over 200 pages, and a busy box office (Tel: 0131 226 0000  -  9am to 9pm).  It has now become the largest Arts Festival in the world.
