Every summer the towns of the Scottish Borders stage the Common Ridings, one of the oldest equestrian festivals in the world. The ridings are an unforgettable spectacle of horsemanship, pageantry and community spirit.

In June the annual Tweed Love Festival is held from a base in Innerleithen.

In August you can attend the renowned cultural exchange event Beyond Borders. And for music lovers there is the Innerleithen Music Festival.

In October woodland creatures and local folk celebrate The Tweed Valley Forest Festival.
