Culture and leisure activities are very much characterised by the great number of events the highly active associations organise. All people in Dals-Ed are in one way or another member of one or more associations.
The market in Ed takes place twice a year – in the spring and in the autumn. Traffic through town is shut down, and the entire community is filled with people who are looking for bargains. The market attracts approximately 15,000 visitors and 300 stallholders. Currently, the market in Ed is one of West-Sweden’s largest markets, and at the same time it’s a major festival where you can bargain-hunt amongst offerings from both stallholders from all over Sweden as well as local merchants.
The Nostalgia Fair, with gadgets that will make people remember, has become an annually recurring event. During the summer season, social evenings always attract a crowd.
