Taste Cumbria food festivals in 2022!

Four festivals, three towns – tuck in to some fabulous Taste Cumbria food festivals.

The events will have everything you’ve come to expect from Taste Cumbria – big producers’ markets, experts to chat to, food and drink to eat on the spot, children’s entertainment, live music and more.

Nearly everything at the Taste Cumbria festivals is free to enjoy. A small number of events are ticketed and we’re keeping a close check on coronavirus restrictions to ensure these are planned in line with the very latest guidelines.

Cockermouth’s festival in September is now a firm fixture in every food fan’s calendar, while we’ll be building on the success of the new Maryport and Wigton events which began in 2021. Then it’s back to Cockermouth for the Christmas markets in December.

Watch this space for more information. We’ll be making more announcements soon.

Why not make a weekend of it? If you’re travelling over to West Cumbria, you could explore the rest of the area too. Great beaches, high and low fells, beautiful lakes and the prettiest towns and villages – Allerdale has it all…
