Having grown from humble beginnings in 2002 into a first class feast of entertainment featuring workshops, seminars, tastings, competitions, demonstrations and over 120 hand-picked exhibitors (70% of which are from Devon), it truly is the very best that the South West has to offer. Described in The Telegraph as a ‘heady mix of celebrity chefs, parties, food markets, tasting shacks and demonstrations’, the festival is now a landmark event on the culinary calendar. What gives us extra stand out is the fact that we’re a free festival. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come along and take part without being charged an entry fee.
Welcome to Dartmouth's Food Festival
FRIDAY 22ND TO SUNDAY 24TH OCTOBER 2021
Festival advocate, seafood restaurateur and author
“Everything that is great about British cooking, growing, harvesting, catching, eating, and drinking is represented here for the four wonderful days of the Dartmouth Food festival every October. It is a festival that is loved by locals and visitors alike and is now a landmark event in the culinary calendar. It is a party atmosphere from start to finish and is held on the banks of the beautiful River Dart which was voted the second most desirable coastal location in the UK in a recent national poll.
I absolutely love it and love being part of it.”
