It’s August – Edinburgh’s favourite month of the year! Why? Because during this time of the year the city hosts the world’s largest arts festival.

Whatever time of the day, during this month Edinburgh turns into a creative and cultural centre for young and old. With live theatre, comedy performances and new shows every year, the festival is definitely an item on the bucket list. Not only do a third of all Edinburgh residents attend the Fringe during August, the festival also attracts many international visitors to explore a wide range of venues. In fact, during this time numbers of people visiting count more than 450,000 and hospitality jobs in Edinburgh are booming.

Did you know that the Edinburgh Fringe Festival welcomes any artist with a venue willing to host them. This year 323 venues are part of the festival. Exactly this is what makes it so diverse and inclusive.


But why is this month so important for hospitality business around Edinburgh? For local business owners that does not only mean profiting from many visiting customers, but also being part of a unique festival experience.
