Festivals & Events

Dartmouth is a town that loves to celebrate and it has peppered its calendar with festivals and special events.  Regular festivals include Dartmouth Music Festival, Dartmouth Food FestivalCandlelit Dartmouth, the highlight being The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, Dartmouth Galleries Week.

The annual Dartmouth Festival of Food aims to showcase local produce and culinary skills in and around beautiful Dartmouth. The aim is to provide a fun and rewarding environment for visitors and locals to learn about and taste great food and drink.

The heart of the Dartmouth Food Festival will be the historic Market Square where a marquee will be erected to provide a weather proof environment for a rolling series of cooking demonstrations, farmers' markets, wine tastings and much more. Cooking shacks will give visitors a chance to meet local chefs and producers and try recipes that will be designed to stimulate your taste buds.

Other Food Festival events will be staged around the town and in the surrounding area. Participating restaurants will host individual events ranging from specially devised tasting menus to food and wine matching.

Dartmouth Galleries Week is a chance to see new exhibitions across the town, in participating galleries. Follow the trail to discover new artists and artworks.

Dartmouth has a great selection of galleries with many people now visiting to see the wide choice of art, craft and jewellery that the town has to offer. Every May and October, most of the galleries each launch a new exhibition on the same evening and the event has a great atmosphere. You can wander from gallery to gallery seeing work from new and established artists at a wide range of prices.
