Dartmouth is renowned as one of the top foodie destinations in Devon. Its love of local produce is demonstrated throughout the year through festivals, events and markets – so no matter when you come to visit – you won’t miss out.
Throughout the year there are many food events – from surrounding town and villages fetes to smaller individual restaurant/cafe and producer specials. Its worth keeping your eye on our Whats On pages to make sure you don’t miss a unique food event!
The biggest food event of the year is the Dartmouth Food Festival, which runs over a weekend in October. With over 120 exhibitors, celebrity chefs, cooking demo’s, seminars, workshops and tastings, it’s no wonder it’s been billed by the Guardian as “One of the Top Ten food festivals in the UK”. Book early to avoid disappointment!
In August, Local Celebrity Chef Mitch Tonks hosts his annual South Devon Crab Party, taking over the Dartmouth embankment for a street party all in aid of celebrating the delicious South Devon Crab in our waters. There’s no event quite like it in Devon.
