Festival Food & Gift Fair
Whether you’re looking for locally sourced food, a special gift or unique craft decorations for your home, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Dorchester Food & Gift Fair makes a perfect day out for all the family.
This event, set in the stunning location of the Abbey cloister garden, will include all our popular exhibitors in huge marquee and a street food and refreshments area – the perfect place to sit down for a rest and enjoy a coffee or lunch. We even have an outside stage with live bands to keep you entertained for the whole day!
It’s just £1 entry to get into the exhibitor tent and shop at the amazing stalls. You can buy your ticket here or at the door on the day
Why not make a day of it and go to a cookery demonstration or two held in beautiful Dorchester house kitchens just a short walk from the Abbey. Finish off with a good street food lunch and a bit of foodie shopping – perfect!
