Fife boasts an exciting and diverse programme of events, from smaller-scale community fairs and galas, to high profile, international sporting events. Successful events create a strong sense of place, valuable economic impact and build essential opportunities to have rich experiences in areas such as the arts, culture, food and drink, heritage and sport.
Please find below some information and resources on how we can help to support event organisers in Fife.
