TagFest Edinburgh 2023 welcomed teams from across the U.K. and Ireland to the first TagFest in Scotland at Duddingston Playing Fields. The glorious weather and off pitch activities all created a wonderful festival atmosphere alongside competitive games throughout the day. The after party into the early hours rounded off a day full of festivities with live music and a visit from a bagpiper!

TagFest Edinburgh 2024 aims to bring even more players to the Scottish capital to enjoy what Edinburgh has to offer. A change of venue to Inch Park, with the same stunning Edinburgh views to be enjoyed from the pitches. Our off-pitch activities will again provide entertainment for players and non-players alike, with an after party to be remembered in the city centre.

Over the coming months we’ll be announcing more details about the off-field activities and events that will take place throughout the day and into the evening at TagFest Edinburgh 2024.

TagFest Edinburgh 2024 will move to Inch Park in South Edinburgh, just 25 minutes from the city centre by public transport. A change of venue bringing bigger and better changing facilities and clubhouse to enjoy a cold beverage after a day of Tag!

The first matches of TagFest Edinburgh 2024 will kick-off at 11am and run through the day with a break in play for an off-pitch competition. The winners’ presentations will take place shortly after the final.

All teams will play through the pool stages to determine whether they make it into the Cup, Plate, Bowl or Shield competition for their division. The four divisions will have staggered finish times to allow easy access to the bar for a well earned drink or three after your final.
