Woolacombe Sand Dune Arts Festival

We’ve teamed up with North Devon National Trust, StudioKIND and a range of local artists and businesses to bring you the first Woolacombe sand dune arts festival on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 August.
This festival is free to attend and is all about celebrating the importance of this beautiful landscape. The dunes at Woolacombe play a vital role as the home for a range of incredible wildlife and are brilliant spaces for our mental and physical wellbeing. The event will include an open-air art gallery, a series of workshops, craft sessions, and live music.

With so much happening throughout the weekend, you are sure to find something for the whole family. Alongside the array of workshops taking place (see below for details) you will also find activities run by StudioKIND (11-3 pm), our dune den (with a selection of activities including pyrography, hapa-zome leaf printing and grass painting.), sketching stations, a range of self-guided activity trails through the dunes and live music from Small Town Jones (a local singer-songwriter).

The famous Woolacombe dunes cow trail will also be returning for the festival, with the opportunity to get involved with painting a new cow before it joins the others grazing in the dunes. To top it all off, there will also be an art exhibition, showcasing the wonderful sand dune-inspired art entries to the festival’s Dynamic Dunescapes Art Competition.

The crown jewel of the festival will be the art exhibition, which will showcase the wonderful sand dune-inspired art entries to the festival’s Dynamic Dunescapes Art Competition. The winners will be chosen by public vote at the festival and local businesses have provided some incredible prizes, including a hang-gliding or paragliding flight with Fly Like a Bird, and a surf lesson for you and a friend at Croyde.
