About the Festival

Wimborne Minster Folk Festival is Wimborne's biggest event of the year. Over the second weekend of June, it attracts tens of thousands of people into the town for three days of folk, family and fun.

One of the UK's premier in-town folk festivals, it draws people from all over the UK, including a high proportion from across the Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire area likely to return to spend money in the town.

'Folk, family and fun' are at the heart of the festival: celebrating folk music and dance; offering a family-friendly atmosphere; and providing a range of fun activities for all ages.

Wimborne is in the spotlight over the folk festival weekend, with TV, radio, press and online media coverage showcasing what the town has to offer. We are highly active on social media, reaching thousands of people across , and .

Organised entirely by volunteers, the festival aims to deliver a range of benefits to Wimborne's economy and community. We are proud to have the backing of East Dorset District Council, Wimborne Minster Town Council and the Wimborne Business Improvement District (BID).
