Things to do

July events in Devon

Music, culture, food and the beautiful great outdoors are just a few things that may come to mind when planning a July in Devon. With warmer weather chasing away the winter blues, it’s tempting to run straight to the nearest beach or relax in the countryside, but with a little local knowledge, you’ll find there are plenty of events to keep you entertained.

Festivals in Devon are a brilliant way to enjoy local customs, produce and traditions. If you’ve been on holiday to Devon before but have never checked out the local shows or celebrations, or even if you’re new to the area, why not get involved this July? With so many activities and so much do to, you can be sure there’ll be something near to your cottage just waiting for you to join in.
