The West End Festival Glasgow

The West End Festival – Fri 31st May to Sun 30th June

Think sunny summer days and long warm nights and get ready for the biggest festival in Glasgow’s cultural calendar which presents a broad range of events and performances every June! 

The West End Festival springs to life across the trendy West End which is, of course, on our doorstep! Byres Road is the main hub of the event which sees a glittering parade of dancers strut their stuff followed by colourful floats and huge parade vehicles, all in celebration of the ethnic mix and cosmopolitan culture of our city.




More than 100 Glasgow-based organisations and arts groups as well as local and international artists present a plethora of activities and entertainment. The WEF combines all these activities into the festival line-up and features events, fairs, musical performances, theatrical productions, tours, workshops and screenings, with a lot of them free of charge, such as the Glasgow Mela, Scotland’s largest multi-cultural festival of music,dance,arts and cuisine from around the world, which is back with a bang this year at Kelvingrove Park on Sunday 23rd June!
