DadFest will be celebrating five years as the UK’s only festival just for dads, male carers and their children when the annual festival takes place in South Devon again this September. The festival is organised by Totnes-based ‘Dangerous Dads’.

DadFest organiser and founder of ‘Dangerous Dads’, Ian Blackwell, is looking forward to celebrating the occasion with dads and their kids at this unique festival, “Last year’s event was a sell-out which shows how much dads of all types enjoy getting away from the everyday and having some adventurous fun with their children. Dads tell us how much they value getting back to nature, chilling-out and spending special time with their kids and other dads. The success of DadFest is down to its simplicity. We’re not a big music festival, we’re just about enjoying the sorts of things we all remember from our childhood, like playing in the woods, making bows and arrows, camping, swimming in the sea, sharing campfire stories and having plenty of fun.’

DadFest 2018 will provide a range of adventurous activities including camping, storytelling in the woods at night, bushcraft, campfire pancakes, spoon carving, den building, bat walk, archery, star-gazing, water rockets, drumming workshop, kids’ entertainer, award-winning local food and beer, stroke a lobster, arts and crafts, play tent, fishing and circus skills; as well as the now renowned ‘World Dad Dancing Championship’ which featured last year on BBC’s The One Show.

DadFest will take place from 14-16 September at the Forest & Beach centre in Beeson, South Devon, which specialises in providing outdoor activities with its own camping field, woodlands and large converted barn.
