About

The first Craft Festival was founded in 2003 in Bovey Tracey, Devon and is a non-profit making organisation and we celebrate our 20th Anniversary in 2024. Our first Festival has grown from around 2,000 visitors to over 10,000 visitors since it started and has become one of the most prestigious and much loved craft events in the Europe. Craft Festival, Bovey Tracey was made possible with the award of LEADER+ funding from the European Union. We have accessed various funds over the years but we are now self-sustaining with additional support provided by working in partnership with a variety of organisations and businesses.

Craft Festival came about when a group of Bovey Tracey craft businesses joined forces and formed a non-profit making company with the aim to bring a large craft fair to Bovey Tracey. The aim of the original Fair was to showcase the very best in British craft and the create a new, sustainable and strong market place for contemporary craft but also to bring greater prosperity to the town of Bovey Tracey. The town has a long history of making and at one point up to 15 commercial potteries were running in the area. The House of Marbles, one of the founding companies is located at the former site of the Bovey Pottery which closed its doors in the mid 80's. The other founding partner was The Devon Guild of Craftsmen, a registered educational charity based in Bovey Tracey.

Craft Festival Bovey Tracey returns in June.
