Take part in a variety of arts and culture events in the Scottish Borders from art trails to cabaret shows and live music concerts.

Celebrate the region's legendary literary connections at the Borders Book Festival in June. One of Scotland's premier literary events, the festival attracts best-selling writers and sell-out crowds.

Many exhilarating days out can be experienced at the Peebles Art Festival in August and September. For over 30 years the festival has been home to many fantastic events including art, craft, theatre, music and much more.

For traditional music, head to the Innerleithen Music Festival in August which features some of the biggest names in Scottish Celtic music.

Enjoy the creative talent of the Scottish Borders whilst exploring lush landscapes and charming towns and villages on the Crossing Borders Art Trail. Taking place over two weekends in the late summer, this is a great chance to chat to local artists and crafts people and buy direct.

Selkirk Vintage Car Rally in September is one of the largest of its kind in Scotland. Explore the event's exhibitions and browse the many craft and auto jumble stalls.

Whether it’s just for you or for the whole family, there are a number of events taking place in galleries, museums, theatres and more in the Scottish Borders.

Enjoy the creative side of this part of Scotland and plan a visit to an arts and culture event in the Scottish Borders.
