The Meadows Festival Association has been considering the implications for this year's event in the current climate. In light of the Scottish government’s guidance, today we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Meadows Festival 2020 due to the current pandemic situation caused by coronavirus (COVID-19). The volunteer organising committee are very disappointed and saddened to cancel the event, however, we understand that the health of the community is paramount.
The entire arts sector is facing an uncertain season; we ask that, if you can, you consider supporting local businesses and community organisations so that we can come together through this difficult time.
We are looking forward to planning 2021 and we would love your support with this. If you would like to take part, volunteer or help in any way please get in touch with us via social media!
Big Meadows Festival love to you all!

Founded in 1974, the Meadows Festival is a free, volunteer-run annual event featuring live music, kids' activities, a dog show, sports, performers, Edinburgh largest outdoor market and loads more.
The festival is run by a voluntary committee, The Meadows Festival Association (Charity SCO17116).
It wouldn't be the Meadows Festival without Edinburgh's largest outdoor market, this year spanning 3 fields! This includes stalls selling merchandise, locally handcrafted items, food & drink vendors, community and information stalls.
