Devon food festivals to take a bite from

We all love a good food festival! The delicious treats, the lovingly created dishes, the Devon produce, they all come together in stunning locations around Devon to provide a wonderful occasion that leaves our mouths watering for more. 

Devon food festivals take place throughout the year and are always worth a visit.

Festivals taking place in North Devon, within a short distance of Saunton Sands, include:

Sea Ilfracombe Maritime Festival

1st - 2nd September 2018. 

A weekend of great food and nautical fun. Expect locally-sourced and freshly prepared seafood, fun attractions, local food stalls, live music and family entertainment. It's free to enjoy thanks to the work of volunteers, charities, council funding and the generosity of local businesses.

Clovelly Lobster & Crab Feast

2nd September 2018

A one-day extravaganza based around the lobster and crab fishing that the cobbled, cliff tumbling, car-free village in North Devon. There'll be live music all day, cookery demonstrations with tastings, a prize draw for a magnum of champagne, local food and craft stalls, beer tasting, plus plenty of freshly cooked lobsters and crabs.   

But that's just the start of what Devon has to offer. 

Travel a little further and open up a world of tents, ales, music, family games and more tasty food. 

Brend Hotels, of which we are part of, have created a list of all the food festivals in Devon during 2018, with a little information on each one. If you plan to travel Devon, how many of these events can you attend?
