Attracting thousands of visitors, this free two day-event offers exceptional food and drink produced in the South West, alongside cookery demonstrations, workshop activities, local chefs, food producers, regional drinks, street food, family friendly workshops and live music to swing into the summer season. This year will see the next batch of Elmhirst Gin being distilled, made exclusively for The Shops at Dartington. With over 50 food and drink stalls under a marquee, visitors will be protected against the elements as they graze from stand to stand.

There are plenty of activities for both adults and children, including magic shows, face painting, pot-throwing, story-telling, craft activities and live animals to meet.

The 15 shops that make up the award-winning shopping village The Shops at Dartington will be open, providing seasonal food and drink tastings, home decoration ideas and unique gifts.

Working alongside Food Drink Devon, the Food Fair aims to celebrate the very best of Devon’s thriving food and drink community, with emphasis on local, sustainable produce. All proceeds generated by the event go towards supporting The Dartington Hall Trust (a registered charity).
