Want to Exhibit?


Booking is now open for the 2017 Dartmouth Food Festival – October 20th – 22nd.

Now in its 15th 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

Purple Planet, suppliers of compostable & eco-friendly packaging, are offering a 10% discount on any orders of Vegware to any of our Festival Exhibitors this year. All you need to do is quote 'Dartmouth Food Festival'. For help, advice and ordering call: 01548 550699, or visit their website: purpleplanetsupplies.co.uk

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.

Save up to 10% on your pitch fee if you apply by March 31st.


To apply:

1. Read the accompanying Terms & Conditions and Plastics Policy before you submit your application.

2. Download the forms and return digitally to office@dartmouthfoodfestival.com or by post to Dartmouth Food Festival, White Sails, 1 St Georges Square, Dartmouth, TQ6 9AQ.  

3. 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).
