Summer Celebration

To celebrate the upcoming school holidays Visit West End are taking over Vinicombe Street and Church Street with their free, family-friendly Summer Celebration!

Summer Celebration

About Summer Celebration

Wander west and join us on Sunday 24th of June from 12-5pm for our Summer Celebration!

To celebrate the upcoming summer holidays, our family-friendly free day out will take over Vinicombe Street and Church Street, both located just off of Byres Road in the heart of Glasgow’s West End.

The day will be filled with lots of fun activities to keep the kids (and adults) entertained!

Spend a lazy (hopefully sunny) Sunday afternoon listening to local Glasgow musicians perform live on stage, whilst the kids enjoy free face painting.

Our traders will also be setting up stalls at our summer market, showcasing an array of gifts, crafts, and antiques. When hunger strikes, you'll find a fabulous selection of food and drinks along Byres Road and in the surrounding lanes.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Summer Celebration are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
