Covering a period of thirteen days, the May Blackpool Dance Festival is by far the largest of the five festivals held in Blackpool. The Festival covers Ballroom and Latin American dancing, incorporating the British Open Championships for Adult Amateur and Professional couples, plus Formation Teams.

2005 saw the introduction of two new events, the British Rising Star Amateur Ballroom and Latin Competitions. 2019 was the event’s 94th year and there were 56 countries represented, with a total number of 2,827 entries in the 13 events!
