Combe Martin Events
Combe Martin Carnival
Mid-August each year
The night offers a variety of family-orientated fun, with the Carnival Parade as its highlight. The main parade is on the Friday and is an evening of excitement and fun, featuring a procession of colourful and imaginative floats, varying in size, theme and history some, like the Uncle Tom Cobley, which has entered the parade since 1911.
3rd Saturday of the month
Combe Martin Shammick Farmers' Market is a real treat! Our village market offers all sorts, from local crafts, homemade preserves, pies, fresh vegetables and fruit, fresh meats, eggs, preserves, cakes, flans, pies, plants and so much more. It is held in the Village Hall every third Saturday of the month, from 9.30-12.00 midday.
Hunting the Earl of Rone
Spring Bank Holiday
Over four days, the Grenadiers, Hobby Horse, Fool and villagers hunt for the Earl of Rone, finally finding him on the Monday night. It starts on Friday evening; Saturday is the junior's day, continuing Sunday. Monday evening sees him finally captured. At the final shooting on the beach, he is thrown into the sea.
August Bank Holiday
The Grand Tour will be out on the open roads with the people of North Devon and Exmoor. The rally is great fun to watch with over 300 cars and raises money for the Childrens Hospice South West.

Lots of stalls including Charities, Gifts, Food and Crafts, Children's Entertainment, BBQ, Raffle and of course the famous Combe Martin Strawberries!
