VW Festival in Wareham, Dorset

Since the first Dorset Volksfest in 2013, we’ve been offering a relaxed weekend of family entertainment with awesome live music, a great choice of street food, a reasonably priced bar and free things for kids to do. And, of course, some very cool rides and beautiful people!

Eleven years on and we’re bigger & better than ever, but nothing much else has changed. We’ve kept our ‘small festival’ vibe, everyone on site appreciates the chilled, friendly atmosphere, our staff get as many compliments as the always amazing autos & entertainment, and we still love putting on a great show!
