The Dartmouth Food Festival is an annual festival celebrating all things food and wine.

“One of the top 10 Food Festivals in the UK.” – The Guardian

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.

Our real aim is to showcase the best that the South West has to offer – from Ashridge Cider and Cornish Seasalt through to the Devon Scone Company and South Devon Chilli Farm. We also want to shout about our award winning restaurants (The Seahorse, The Elephant in Torquay and the Millbrook Inn, South Pool to name but a few) and their amazing chefs. Without being too biased, we probably have the most award winning chefs per square foot than anywhere else in the country.
