Welcome to the Wessex Folk Festival 2022. The famous Free Wessex Folk Festival is held every year in the first week of June and has been established for the past 20 years. It is a free Festival held in the picturesque Harbourside in Weymouth.

Now one of the biggest free folk music festivals in England, the Wessex Folk Festival has grown to become one of Dorset’s favourite events, with thousands of music lovers visiting every year. 30 live stage performances throughout Saturday and Sunday makes this weekend, without a doubt, not one to be missed!

Kicking off on Friday afternoon and evening with singalong folk music sessions in the harbourside pubs, the main festival lasts the whole of Saturday and Sunday with around 30 Morris sides dancing in the streets along the harbourside, fabulous trade stalls, eating, drinking, laughing singing and dancing all weekend long. When the harbour lights go on, the fun and music carries on in the harbourside pubs, way into the night. The challenge is to do the whole weekend and make it to the Survivors’ Night on Sunday night at the Sailor’s Return!
