Tourism businesses throughout Fife are gearing up for a busy season ahead, with arts festivals and food & drink celebrations being just some of the events taking place which are set to attract visitors and locals alike throughout the summer months.
The arts festival season is being celebrated as part of the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design 2016, with the Cupar Arts Festival bringing an international artistic flavour to proceedings under the theme 'liminality'. A collection of contemporary visual arts from across the UK and overseas will form a curated art trail around the town.
The Senior Open Championship will take place over the Tay in Carnoustie following last year's hugely successful hosting of The Open in St Andrews and there will also be a number of Highland games taking place across the region including in Burntisland. Take a look at VisitScotland's online guide to discover more taking place in Fife.
Tourism is more than a holiday experience; it creates jobs and sustains communities in every corner of Fife. The popularity and variety of events throughout the season ahead will play a large role in boosting the local visitor economy with hotels, B&Bs, restaurants and cafes all set to benefit.
