Come and join us for a celebration of the best in local food and drink. Not to be missed, it’s a day jam-packed with food, fun and frivolity.

There’ll be stalls the length of the town, featuring the fabulous Anonymous Travelling Market on Park Walk, as well as producers from The Dorset Farmers Market and Dorset Food and Drink in the High Street.

Most of the stallholders will be selling produce and products that they have produced themselves – you will be able to ask about the provenance of most items being sold.

And of course, the utterly bonkers Cheese Races up the iconic Gold Hill! Not for the faint hearted but oh so entertaining. Are you up for the challenge?

Swans Yard will be hosting Live Music as well as showcasing some of the best in local art and crafts and make sure to pop along to the Shaftesbury Abbey Gardens for dancing with our very own Steps in Time.

Most of the towns shops will be open, the majority of whom are independents.
