Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

Scotland’s friendliest art fair is set to return with more than 70 artists and galleries, from across the Borders and as far apart as Aberdeenshire and Devon, for visitors to discover.

Within an hour’s drive of Edinburgh and Newcastle, the annual event attracts more than 4,000 visitors to meet the host of participating painters, print makers, sculptors, illustrators and other contemporary artists and makers. The work on display includes landscape, wildlife and portrait painting through to animal sculptures, ceramics and stone carvings.

BAF is family-friendly and features workshops and demonstrations. You can relax and refuel at the indoor food village, where there will be food vans packed with all sorts of tempting treats. Kelso offers a variety of restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars, all in walking distance from The Borders Events Centre. There are also plenty of hotels, guesthouses, B&Bs and country cottages to rent.

BAF takes place at The Borders Event Centre and starts at 10am each day, ending at 4pm on Friday and Sunday and 5pm on Saturday– visitors are asked to pay what they can afford in order to support next year’s event.

For details of the exhibitors see the event website and follow BAF on social media for the latest updates.
