Spring Fling is a vibrant visual art and craft open studios event covering the length and breadth of Dumfries and Galloway in South West Scotland; it is highly regarded as one of the UK's most successful visual art and craft events. The 2018 event will take place from the 26 - 28 May when carefully selected Artists & Makers will open their doors to visitors showcasing their work throughout the Dumfries and Galloway area.
