Leith Festival Pageant/Parade will make its way down the famous Leith Walk to Leith Links on Saturday 8th June from 12 noon to join the celebrations already on the Links….bringing together performers and locals alike and keeping up a tradition which stems back to 1907

Leith Festival Gala Day takes place on Saturday 8th June, from 11am, with an expected turnout of around 10,000. Gala Day is traditionally a community event that has grown to becoming a crucial part of the Leith Festival; celebrating some of what the community of Leith has to offer and promises to be a day full of multi-cultural arts….not forgetting Taylor’s fun fair.
