We're excited to welcome you to our 4th year at Family Fest with this year including over 50 of Dorset's best traders, live music from local artists and musicians, family funfair, inflatable zone, family & friends zone, dog show, classic car show and more across two fun-packed days for the whole family.
This year tickets are £1 each for anyone aged 6 or over (plus payment fees) and these are available through our ticketing partner. We expect tickets to sell out fairly quickly and with this year at limited capacity, buy your tickets today to avoid disappointment!
Tickets must be brought prior to the event and tickets will not be available at the gate. Tickets will be £2 per a person when buying 24 hours before our event for 2021.
If you plan to be on-site across the day, you will require two tickets, a 11am to 3pm ticket and a 3pm to 7pm ticket. This applies to both days.
** Eventbrite Tickets: Due to an admin issue with our ticket provider, Eventbrite, all tickets from this provider have been refunded on 24th July 2021 and can take 5-7 business days to show in your account. We are still going ahead as planned but if you brought your tickets through Eventbrite originally, you need to rebuy your tickets. You can rebuy your tickets below, now through our official website, with all of the same options available **

We reserve the right to make alterations to the attractions, activities, music, dates, times, venue location and introduce restrictions on activity if advised by the government or the local council/ statutory authority.
