The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is the world’s largest arts festival. With more than 57,000 performances and 3,500 shows, it’s billed as the world’s greatest platform for creative freedom. Held annually in Scotland’s capital city during the month of August, the festival is a celebration of art in all its forms, from dance performances and live music to stand-up comedy and art exhibitions.

 

With nearly a month of events, many of the activities during the festival can fly under the radar if you’re not familiar with Edinburgh Fringe. Venues from around the city host performances and showcases each night, which often sell out months in advance. You find information on the various shows on the website, along with ways to purchase tickets. Visiting during the festival can get pretty pricey. Luckily, the Free Edinburgh Festival runs alongside the official celebration each year. The free festival features a large variety of street performances and other showcases much lighter on your wallet.

 

Whether you’re a fan of great comedy or simply want to explore some new and innovating artwork, there’s no place on Earth better than the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Events run for nearly four weeks, so you can head there anytime during the month of August and experience some incredible talent.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
