European Land Art Festival & World Rock Stacking Championships 2024

9-14 July

Dunbar, Scotland

We'll be back again this year with another activity-packed week of land art workshops and stone stacking championships for everyone to enjoy, with no charge for admission.

 

Not only that, but this year’s event will be a very special one, with elaf holding for the first time ever outside the USA, The World Rock Stacking Championships, which is usually held at Llano Earth Art Fest (LEAF) in Texas. LEAF has plans to be back in 2025, but in the meantime, we’re delighted to hold the event in sunny Dunny.​ Usual programming will resume next year with The European Stone Stacking Championships taking place during elaf 2025.

 

So save the dates and see you there!
