It is with a heavy heart that, again, the voluntary committee has decided to cancel the 20th Derwent Valley Autumn Festival. The current COVID climate has made events and festival unpredictable. Patron safety, safety of stallholders, and volunteer health and safety is at the forefront of our concern. Together with low stallholder interest, and apprehension of patrons attending public events have all impacted our decision to cancel the 2022 Derwent Valley Autumn Festival.

We would like to thank the Derwent Valley Council, and their staff, for their continuous support, and we would like to thank everyone that has supported the Derwent Valley Autumn Festival since our last cancellation in 2020. Hopefully the world is a safer place in 2023. Stay safe in the meantime.
