Dunedin Dancers organises an International Folk Dance Festival every two years. We usually invite three European folk dance groups to our festival, the visiting groups representing different folk dance backgrounds.

The festival is based in Edinburgh, where we learn each other's dances and join in social activities. We also put on a variety of public performances of international folk dancing in Edinburgh and at other venues such as Falkland Palace and Stirling Castle.

All our visitors are accommodated with hosts in and around Edinburgh. Hosting is an excellent way of participating in the festival, whether or not you can dance. It provides an opportunity to get to know foreign visitors and join in the social aspects of the festival. Hosts provide bed and breakfast for the week, and also a couple of packed lunches and two evening meals.
