The Dales Festival of Food and Drink


17th–18th June, 2017, 10:00–18:00

The Dales Festival of Food and Drink 2017 brings together the best food and drink the Yorkshire Dales has to offer, over a two day event held in the heart of Leyburn Market Town.

Last year the event attracted over 6,000 visitors across the weekend to enjoy and taste the best food and drink the Dales has to offer.

Following such a successful Dales Festival of Food and drink in 2016, The Wensleydale Creamery is delighted to be the main sponsor again for this year’s event. This year the Wensleydale Creamery is working with the Dales Festival of Food and Drink to bring together the best cheese-making in the Yorkshire Dales, to delight visitors to the festival. Featuring local artisan producers, this unique area showcases British cheese from God’s Own country, and cheese-makers from the area are encouraged to exhibit their wares and give visitors a true taste of Yorkshire.

Across the weekend there is a hive of activity from chef demonstrations, wellbeing talks, craft exhibitors, picnic areas, entertainment and all things foodie! There is over 80 food and drink stalls showcasing their best food and drink from around the Yorkshire Dales. The large craft section has been expanded for 2017 due to the popularity of 2016. There is also an entertainment area located at the top of Leyburn for all the family to enjoy across the weekend.

The festival is open from 9:00am until 6:00pm both days and is free entry for all the family but parking charges apply at £5.00 per vehicle, the car parks are located on the outskirts of Leyburn and a shuttle bus will bring you in to the square on the weekend.
