The Scottish Borders is an events and festivals destination for all seasons and tastes.

Experience the warmest of welcomes and outstanding hospitality as you witness proud traditions being upheld, culture and creativity celebrated, and action-packed events that will keep you entertained all year-round.

Embrace the outdoors of the Scottish Borders by taking up the challenge of the Mighty Deerstalker obstacle run in March. Situated in the grounds of Traquair House, this exciting event takes in the breathtaking surroundings of the Tweed Valley.

Also in the grounds in August, you can enjoy the Traquair Fair, a two day event which this year has an Americana theme. See theatre and Wild West shows, hear country, bluegrass and soul music and go for a ride on the mechanical bull!

Enjoy amazing scenery from quiet country roads at the week-long festival of bike riding, Tweedlove, or listen to world-renowned authors at the Borders Book Festival. Another highlight is the Borders' Heritage Festival, which celebrates the region's history with around 30 great events including walks, talks and theatre.

Discover the colourful history of the Scottish Borders at the Return to the Ridings or put on your walking boots and head to the annual Scottish Borders Walking Festival.

The Aviva Tour of Britain returns to the Scottish Borders in September with two stages passing through the region. The route takes in numerous Scottish Borders towns and villages including Kelso, Duns and Coldstream as well as the iconic locations of Floors Castle and the Lammermuir Hills.
