The West End Festival is Glasgow's largest community festival with over 400 events in 80 venues, featuring over 100 organisations and 2,500 performers.
The big public events such as the Opening Parade in Byres Road and the Gibson Street Gala attract huge crowds to the parks and streets of the west end.
A diverse programme of theatre, classical and choral music, folk and rock music, talks, guided walks, children's authors, film and comedy make up one of the largest cultural events in Scotland.
Many events are free and organisations use the Festival as a platform to showcase the breadth of the creative community based in Glasgow.
Founded in 1996, the festival has inspired other events such as the Glasgow Mela, the Bard in the Botanics, Paintings on Railings, the Cottier Chamber Project and the Partick Farmers Markets. Since then, one million people have attended events, and over 500 organisations have taken part.
