The Meadows Festival

The Meadows Festival has been held annually since 1975, except for a 2-year gap in 2006 and 2007.  It now returns in 2008.

The organisers of the 2008 festival write:

"The Meadows Festival is a long running community event starting afresh this year, with a wide variety of entertainment, from bands and other music, to a juniors football competition.

There are stalls with antiques, small furniture and Bric-a-brac, Fair Trade (T-shirts, Children's clothes, toys, small gifts, Indian, Thai & Nepalese clothes), Guatemalan jackets, bags, vintage clothes, music memorabilia, records and CDs, new and second hand books, knitwear, shoes and branded goods, jewellery, arts & crafts, fruit, wine, food and plants.

Parking is very limited around the Meadows and illegally parked vehicles have been ticketed or towed away before, so get a bus, Lothian 41, 42, 23 or 27 or other buses to Tollcross or Clerk Street, cycle or walk.

Funded by Awards for All, City of Edinburgh Council and many local businesses and individuals, it is hoped that the festival will bring together local communities for a fun day out!"
