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. In 2019 70,000 people visited the town over the festival weekend.

It is one of the largest gatherings of dance teams and musicians in the South of England and continues to grow year on year. The whole town comes alive with music and comedy concerts, ceilidhs, workshops and sessions, dance displays, street markets and family areas.

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).
