Ashcott Beer Festival


The Ashcott Beer Fest is an annual event held in the village of Ashcott in Somerset.  The weekend of fine ales and entertainment is intended for both the beer expert and the family to enjoy.

Welcome to the Ashcott Beer Fest!

This year ‘s Beer Fest looks set to be the most exciting yet with Enchanted Forest-themed activities for children and the introduction of a new Pimms ‘shack’ for adults!

On Saturday the family fun day will keep everyone entertained with craft activities from 12 to 5pm.

For the first time ever the summer favourite tipple Pimms will be available, as well as our full range of ales, ciders and wines.

More amazing music, food and drink will keep adults entertained throughout the evening.

The event - now in its 19th Year - prides itself on its family atmosphere with free camping for festival-goers to enjoy the event to the fullest.

We are very fortunate to have the use of Ashcott Playing Fields, one of the three main beneficiaries of the festival along with Ashcott Primary School and Cheeky Chimps Pre-school.

We would like to remind everyone of our camping rules.  Every under 17-year-old MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult OVER the age of 25.  Please look after our beautiful facility and leave it litter-free.

Lastly, we thank the playing field committee, all our neighbours, sponsors, supporters, volunteers and visitors for helping to make Ashcott Beer Fest 2017 the best yet!


Help us by sponsoring a barrel of beer! Many of the local firms support us and without this we would be unlikely to make any money for our charities.

Sponsors - our heroes!

Ashcott Beef Fest has an amazing band of friendly volunteers who help with different parts of the festival. Please email info@ashcottbeerfest.org or fill in the enquiry form on the Contact Us page if you would like to lend a hand.
