Merchant City Festival

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We are sorry to confirm we will not have any outdoor activity (markets, classic car boot sale, street performance) running at the Merchant City Festival tomorrow (Sunday Aug 7) due to the high winds being forecast. Indoor events at the Old Fruitmarket, City Halls, The Tron and DogHouse will go ahead as scheduled. The Vintage Tea Dance event has now Sold Out.

​​​​The Merchant City Festival presents some of the best of Scottish and international art and entertainment with a programme of street arts, music, theatre, food & drink, visual art, film, comedy, dance, fashion & design and children & families activities, while at the same time showcasing the unique cultural hub that is the Merchant City.  ​


The Merchant City Festival 2016 will take place from 30th July – 7th August, a nine day event that is now the centrepiece of the city’s summer calendar.

We are delighted to welcome back Vintage this year to Merchant City Festival​ with a weekend (6th & 7th August) of all things retro including the Classic Car Boot Sale, Oh! You Pretty Things - a Bowie and Roxy Music club night, the Charleston Brunch and a vintage Tea Dance​.
