This award winning food festival organiser’s first festival was in Kirkby Lonsdale, an inaugural event for one of the most foodie and fabulous towns in Cumbria. Taking place on Easter weekend it brought thousands of people to attend along with many of the counties best food producers and suppliers.
Now looking to the second festival and the town is the lovely market town in the centre of the Furness peninsula, Ulverston. This is the fourth year the town has hosted the festival which has most definitely grown year on year. The area around Ulverston is so fertile with food brands, producers and suppliers and allows visitors from Barrow and West Cumbria as well as South Lakeland to easily access delicious food.
Around 60 food and beverage businesses will be exhibiting, selling and demonstrating at the festival. You’ll find everything from cheeses to breads, chutneys to meat. Local produce will also be in the form of international dishes and food that always proves popular at these festivals. There will also be homewares too but everything with a distinct and delicious culinary theme.
As a festival, young and old will attend and there will be entertainment to suit all making it a real family weekend of fun. Many visitors go on the first day only to go back the next too as there is is so much to see, do, buy oh and of course, eat! Free to attend, it’s a must date for the Spring Bank Holiday weekend which reports look as showing to be a dry, sunny one.
