Where and When

Exeter Showgrounds, on the Main Road. Open 9am to 3pm on Saturday and Sunday 25th and 26th November.     You can arrive at farms at any time, but tours start either on the hour or the half hour. Check the program to find out when at each farm.


Tickets for the Festival can be purchased at the Hub and at the farms. Once you show your ticket, you will be given a wristband to wear for the rest of your visit.

When Visiting Farms

Each of the venues is a working farm and we ask that you respect our property with a few simple rules.

Children are welcome at Farmgate Festival but we ask that they be supervised by an adult at all time. We regret that no dogs are allowed on the farms, as we all have livestock and crops. Thank you.

We appreciate your help in keeping gates closed, and please take care around electric fences – marked with signs. The ground on our working farms may be uneven, or muddy – sturdy shoes are a good idea.

And finally, each of our farmers is taking part in Farmgate Festival and giving their time freely. We thank you for behaving with courtesy and respect towards them.
