A recent analysis by Dumfries and Galloway Council of the series of festivals and events held in the region in late 2018 has shown that they generated more than £6 million.
The 20th annual Wigtown Book Festival had an economic impact of £3.75m, the Electric Fields music festival £1.45m, the Stranraer Oyster Festival up to £1.1m and the Galloway Hills Rally £120,000.
The events covered in the analysis are all funded by the council as part of its Major Events and Festivals Strategy 2018-2021.
