Wigtown Book Festival
September 22 - October 1
Wigtown Book Festival 2023 will take place from 22 September – 1 October 2023.
Founded in 1999, the 10-day Wigtown Book Festival is now one of the UK’s best-loved literary events. The festival hosts more than 200 events and activities for all ages, including music, theatre, food and visual arts.
Wigtown is a traditional market town, set in the beautiful countryside of Dumfries & Galloway, south-west Scotland. It is also Scotland’s National Book Town, a designation that reflects its dozen or so secondhand bookshops and annual literary festival.
