We may be known for peace, tranquility and natural beauty ... but we also know how to put on a world-class event here in Devon.
There are fantastic Devon events going on across the county every day of the year - but some stand out as our biggest crowd-pleasers, drawing people in their thousands.
Whether you're into music, food, sport, culture or spectacular displays of fireworks and planes you'll find a big event to tempt you down to Devon (you can find accommodation here). Take a look at our rundown of some of Devon's biggest events - then follow the links below to find many more.
Every year in August Plymouth's waterfront is the scene of the jaw-dropping British Fireworks Championships. This spectacular two day programme of displays start at dusk, but from early evening there's also music, entertainment, stalls and a funfair at Plymouth Hoe.
Throughout the year there's lots going on for music fans across Devon - see our full rundown of music events here. But those that draw the biggest crowds include: Goldcoast Oceanfest (June) - three days of waterfront music and beachsports in Croyde; MTV Crashes Plymouth (July/August) - two days of live chart-topping music and entertainment on Plymouth Hoe; Beautiful Days (August) - a 16,500 capacity family-friendly weekend festival at Escort Park, managed by the Levellers; and watch out for international artists performing at Exeter's Westpoint venue throughout the year.
Devon's a huge draw for foodies, so it's unsurprising that some of the UK's biggest and best annual food festivals happen here. Look out for the Exeter Festival of South West Food and Drink around Easter, Plymouth's Flavourfest in June, and the Dartmouth Food Festival and North Devon Foodfest, both in October. See here for more Devon food events
For reasons lost in antiquity, every year on November 5 huge flaming tar barrels are carried through the streets of Ottery St Mary – and thousands turn out to see this quite uniquely Devon spectacle.
Devon has a huge array of sports events througout the year. Some of the biggest include regattas such as the Royal Dartmouth and Royal Torbay, national and international rugby fixtures at Sandy Park, home of Exeter Chiefs, and the Tour of Britain cycle race which draws huge crowds when it passes through Devon.
The Devon County Show is of course a highlight of the calendar - it's three days of farming, food and fun in May.
Look out for the Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival and Appledore Book Festival, both of which welcome celebrated authors and personalities during September/October.
