Welcome To The Dartmoor Folk Festival

Plans are well under way for the 40th Dartmoor Folk Festival which will take place on the 11th, 12th & 13th August 2017 in the village of South Zeal near Okehampton in Devon. We'll have another packed programme of concerts, ceilidhs, workshops, song and music sessions, a children's festival, craft displays, folk service, a Dartmoor ramble and much more. Check out the ARTISTS page and other tabs regularly for updates.

Please don't forget that DOGS are not permitted at any festival venue including the recreation ground. They are welcome on the festival campsite on a lead.
