Throughout the year, we plan a variety of exciting Festival-related events. These typically include formal cocktail parties and dinners through to a family-oriented chilli/curry competition for local pubs and restaurants, gin tasting workshops with our sponsors Salcombe Gin, and themed events with our local school, the Dartmouth Academy. These are an important way to raise money for Festival itself (which each year costs us £100,000 to put on) and are an enjoyable way to engage in the subject of food and drink. They are also an opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. We turn a fresh eye to the programme each year, and always have something new and different. For example, on September 25th, 2021, we are planning our first ever 13-mile Dart the Dart Run with, of course, foodie stops along the route to add to the fun and to keep the Festival focus alive and well.
If you would like to be kept up-to-date with news about forthcoming events then do please register for our newsletter. We also publicise events through this website and extensively via social media. Tickets can be booked easily through this website.
We are always looking for people to help develop new ideas, drive ticket sales, and to roll up their sleeves and help in practical ways, so do please get in touch with us if you would like to volunteer.
