Leith Festival is an array of colour, sound, culture and pageantry that takes place over nine days in June, showing off the wealth of Leith’s local talent, community spirit and beyond!!!. The Festival, The Pageant/Parade and Gala Day all date back to 1907, and over 100 years later, it’s still going strong!!

It gives the community of Leith and beyond the opportunity to showcase their talents and allows the whole of the community and visitors from all over to enjoy the events.

Events range from music to visual art, exhibitions to guided tours, dance to theatre, film to comedy……the list goes on. And what’s more, all of the events take place within approximately a 1 mile radius from the
Fit O’ the Walk.
