Dartmoor Walking Festival 2020
The first ever Dartmoor Walking Festival in 2016 was a great success and the very positive feedback really supported the idea of it becoming an annual event which is absolutely fabulous. Therefore Moorland Guides have held it again in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and the public voted with their feet – literally – and it seems that the festival is here to stay!
The next festival will be held from Saturday 22nd August until Sunday 30th August 2020 inclusive which means that this will be the last full week of August. However we must stay vigilant to changes announced as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and accept that we might need to make significant changes to the anticipated programme in respect to dates, events, numbers of walkers etc. In 2020 we are again teaming-up with the National Disabled Ramblers who have seen what 2018 and 2019 successes were like. Our chosen charity for 2020 is again the Devon Air Ambulance. Please keep an eye on our monthly newsletters and also this website for any changes which need to be made to the festival plans. Everyone at Moorland Guides offers every best wish for staying healthy and well, and enjoying the moors and the outdoors while adhering to government guidelines.
