After Black Friday, thousands of artists and cultural organisations around the world get together in a unique festival and support social causes through their event. From 26 to 30 November 2021, Scotland is joining the celebration of Fair Saturday as part of the wider celebration of St Andrew’s Day and everyone is invited to take part.

Through a programme of events and activities right across the country, St Andrew’s Fair Saturday contributes to the global Fair Saturday movement and the celebration of St Andrew’s Day and is a key component of a co-ordinated drive to boost social inclusion, kindness and sharing inspired by Scotland’s National Day.

St Andrew’s Fair Saturday is a Scottish Government initiative which is being delivered by the Fair Saturday Foundation.
