The Weekend of the 18th to the 20th Oct is the Dartmouth Food Festival. https://www.dartmouthfoodfestival.com/

This is one of 3 events in Dartmouth this weekend to celebrate the Food Festival.

Saturday 19th

Sunday 20th


To coincide with the Food Festival, this is a leisurely hike in the area from Kingswear to Paignton - around 9 miles and then return to Kingswear by Steam Train.  From Kingswear it's just a short ferry journey across the River Dart back into Dartmouth itself. Afterwards we will take part in the Food Festival and watch all the celebrity chefs who will be in town for the weekend.

Best of the South West

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.

Local & National Heroes

The Festival welcomes many special guests, from internationally renowned chefs to celebrated writers and critics, to provide a huge range of exciting, informative and downright delicious entertainment. 

Staying for the weekend?

There's a luxury gay owned and run B+B nearby that have agreed that if you book up with them and mention you're on this event, they'll offer a discount to you.  They've also said that if people want to camp, they've got space for up to 5 tents and for a £10 a night, they'll throw in breakfast as well.  I'll be camping there for the weekend.

Contact them direct if you want to book the B+B - https://www.downtonlodge.co.uk/
