Dartington Food Fair
Join the fun at our 7th annual Food Fair for a delicious day out that will be to the whole family’s taste!
With over 40 of Devon’s finest food and drink producers showcasing their mouth-watering wares in and around the main marquee – in addition to those demonstrating in the expanded Food Shop – there is plenty to tempt the appetite. You’ll be inspired by a host of local foodie heroes who will be holding plenty of delicious cookery demonstrations and workshops throughout the event. Children’s activities, visiting animal friends, live music and entertainment and craft demonstrations complete the line-up for a fun-packed family day out.
Working alongside Food and 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.
The Dartington Food Fair is two fantastic days filled with great local produce, tastings, workshops, chef demos, children’s entertainment, music and activities for all the family.

Seven generations of travelling showmen have made Rowlands Fun Fair and Amusements the family business that it is today.
Like those family members who came before him, David Rowland, current business manager and son of the late Albert Rowland of J Rowland and Sons, has a reputation for delivering the very best in fun fairs and amusements.
That reputation is thanks to the wealth of knowledge and experience accumulated over decades in the business.
There is a lot of history to this family firm.
Family members have served in both World Wars and throughout the lifetime of this great company the skills and expertise required to run a fun fair of the highest quality has been passed down from generation to generation.
