2020 Festival Cancelled

First of all we’d like to thank those of you who have applied for your application to join us in Dartmouth this October but it’s with great sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Dartmouth Food Festival. 

We do appreciate how disappointing this announcement will be for everyone involved including the organising committee. This will be the first time in 18 years that the Festival will not take place. 

As you know the Festival has been a very popular event in the Dartmouth calendar and attracts around 20,000 visitors over the three days of October. 

Very careful consideration has been given to the circumstances in which we all find ourselves and we concluded that we have no choice. We cannot plan and run a festival that involves large gatherings of people in enclosed spaces. For us, public safety is paramount. 

We are taking this decision now because we have to start making significant financial commitments well in advance of the Festival weekend. So… with social distancing and other restrictions likely to be in place for the rest of this year we decided to act quickly and hopefully, responsibly.

I am sorry to be the bearer of such disappointing news but we hope you are managing through these unprecedented times and that you are safe and well. Our goal is to make the next Festival even better than the last one and hope you will able to join us 22nd, 23rd and 24th October 2021.

 Please keep in touch via our website www.dartmouthfoodfestival.com where we will keep you informed.
