Princetown Arts Festival

Princetown Arts Festival calls for funding support to ensure the best possible visitor experience Princetown, Devon – [20th and 21st July 2024]

This July will see the launch of the second Princetown Arts festival (20 and 21 July 2024).

Dartmoor and surrounding areas boast a vibrant artistic community, and the Princetown Arts Festival will again bring together talented artists from a wide range of artistic media. Attendees can expect to experience a wide range of art forms, including sculpture, photography, painting, literature, music, and much more. This festival is a melting pot of creativity, providing a platform for artists to showcase their talents and inspire others with their unique perspectives.

Entertainment is a key aspect in all festivals and acts in the inaugural festival were extremely well received and included folk, jazz, dance and gorgeous choral sessions. This year the PAF team hope to extend this repertoire to include more entertainment and more variation.

Set against the picturesque backdrop of Dartmoor, the Princetown Arts Festival will take place in several enchanting venues throughout Princetown. This charming town, known as the highest settlement on the moors and famous for its iconic Dartmoor prison, adds an extra layer of allure to the festival experience. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore historic venues and Darttymoor itself while immersing themselves in the vibrant arts scene.

Mark your calendars for July 20th to 21st, as the Princetown Arts Festival is not to be missed. With a full weekend dedicated to celebrating Dartmoor’s artistic community, visitors will have ample time to appreciate the creativity on display and engage with the artists themselves.
