Celebrate Glasgow Mela Festival 2023 this Summer

Kelvingrove Park will be transformed into a place of colour, music, dance and creativity on Sunday, June 25th, 2023. The largest festival of its kind in Scotland, Glasgow Mela is a magnet for thousands of people from all over to celebrate the traditions of the Indian sub-continent.

Visitors from around Scotland and the UK will be treated to any number of incredible dance, music, and interactive acts from around the world, showcasing so many inspiring international artists, as well as local groups from a wide range of communities in Glasgow.

Totally free to attend, Glasgow Mela has been taking place since 1990 and is representative of a vibrant multi-cultural Scotland that welcomes families, individuals, and groups to experience so much on offer.

No festival would be complete without an interesting marketplace and street food, and Glasgow Mela will certainly deliver on this too. Visitors will be treated to an assault on their senses with the delicious street food available to buy and sample.

Society is going through so much change in the last few years, and it’s wonderful to see the diversity and inclusive nature of events and festivals taking place. Get involved, make it a weekend to remember and join in the festivities and celebrations. The Kelvingrove Hotel is only a short walk to the venue, as are some of our other McQuade Properties including City Apartments, and the Albion Hotel. Check our website for availability, details, and best prices.

Hope to see you at Glasgow Mela.
