Welcome to the 2023

Sidmouth Folk Festival

Craft & Music Village!

We are so excited to get you all back to Sidmouth and enjoy the festival at its best again and we’re very excited to build on the success of last years Craft & Music Village !

Come and browse our stalls in our wonderful location, right in the heart of the festival in Blackmore Gardens! This year we welcome traders selling everything from Jewellery to Artwork, Clothing to Crystals and not forgetting Violins, Harps and Squeezeboxes …and everything in between!

Cafe Dish is back in its rightful place with us too, so why not grab a cake or some lunch after perusing the stalls! Plus the Craft Village is getting its own drinks set up this year, Froth and Grind, celebrating Devon’s products; special Owen’s coffee, splendid homemade cakes and lots more.
