Food festival in the South Lakes this April not to be Missed

With a full and extremely packed weekend of all things food going on throughout the South Lakes town of Kendal, a day trip is not going to be enough at the Taste Kirkby Lonsdale Food Festival.

Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th of April 2019 will see various premises and the main Market Square lined with stalls and demonstrations celebrating all that is amazing about produce in and around this very foodie region. After ever increasing excellent reviews and attendance figures year on year, the 2019 festival is set to be the biggest and best yet.

The two day festival will have 30 stands to peruse being made up of food to purchase and take home but also a plethora of hot and cold food and snacks to devour whilst walking around. Hot food will come in the form of Cumbrian produce traditionally cooked through to Cumbrian produce with international flavours such as Thai and Mexican.

Being the school Easter holidays, Children are well catered for too and not just in terms of food. Lots of children’s activities including an Easter egg hunt are planned and Rainbow Jelly for the little ones.

Finally, head to the Lunesdall Hall for chef demonstrations and expert chat and presentations. Kirkby Lonsdale and the South Lakes isn’t just about produce, the area now has some extremely exciting and innovative chefs. Look out for Oli Martin of Hipping Hall and Masterchef The Professional finalist and also Ben Wilkinson of Cottage in the Wood near Keswick.

With so much to see and do and to really make the most of this event, why not book to stay over in or around the Kirkby Lonsdale or Kendal area that weekend. The Riverside Hotel in Kendal is easy to get to from the North East, Scotland or South and the town itself has lots to see and do also as well as being just 20 minutes from Kirkby Lonsdale.

Open 10am until 5pm on Saturday and 10am until 4pm on Sunday. Remember to bring lots of bags you’ll need them for all the goodies!
