The second Taste Cumbria Food Festival of 2018 is set to take place on Spring Bank Holiday weekend in the market town of Ulverston.
This award winning food festival organiser’s first festival of 2018 was in Kirkby Lonsdale in April, an inaugural event for one of the most foodie and fabulous towns in Cumbria. As in previous years, 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 will be the fifth 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.
Food and beverage businesses spanning the whole industry will be exhibiting, selling and demonstrating at the festival. You’ll find everything from cheeses to breads, chutneys to meat, food to take home and food to eat whilst walking around. 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 is aimed at people of all ages and is a real family weekend of fun. Many visitors go on the first day only to go back the next too as there 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.
