Want to Exhibit?


Booking is now open for the 2018 Dartmouth Food Festival – October 19th - 21st.

Now in its 16th year, the festival has become one of the top 10 food festivals in the UK, with nearly 25,000 visitors and as such attracts a large number of potential exhibitors. Our priority is to offer our visitors a wide range of the highest quality local, regional and artisan produce so if you feel you can make a positive contribution to our event please apply.

Main criteria for a successful application are:

  • Products or companies from within the South West
  • Locally sourced ingredients where possible
  • An innovative product with an attractive and eye catching display
  • Use of environmentally-friendly packaging and take-away containers where applicable – please refer to our new Plastics Policy

Please note that whilst we will continue do our best to accommodate our long-standing stall-holders, it is essential we bring in a number of new stalls each year to ensure a diverse and varied festival for the public to enjoy. Previous attendance may not therefore guarantee a place in a subsequent year.

Closing date for applications is May 31st 2018. 

To apply:

  • Read the accompanying Terms & Conditions and Plastics Policy before you submit your application.
  • Download the forms and return digitally to dartfoodfest.exhibitors@gmail.com or by post to Dartmouth Food Festival, 3 Coombe Close, Dartmouth, Devon. TQ6 9PD.  
  • If you are successful, you will receive an invoice for the pitch and ancillaries for settlement within 30 days and you would need to submit, with your payment, a valid public liability insurance certificate that covers the dates of the Festival, proof of registration as a food business, risk assessment and PAT test certificates, together with a digital copy of your company logo (800 x 800 pixels).
