Food and Drink Event
Run over two days (27th & 38th May), Taste Cumbria is the county’s biggest and best food festival and is now a firm favourite in Ulverston’s events calendar. Visitors can shop at a tempting food market, which is a great showcase for local producers, and enjoy snacks and meals from the hot food court. There will be live demonstrations from some of the most creative Cumbrian chefs and experts – they’ll be sharing their favourite recipes and handing out samples to eat at the end. Little visitors can enjoy food-themed fun in a dedicated children’s area. Many of the town’s lovely independent businesses will also be joining in the fun with lively window displays and special offers.
Horticultural Show & Sports
The marquees are filled with exhibits of horticulture, home produce, handicrafts, photography and film. On the sports field there are fell races, track races plus other events such as tug-of-war. There are many children’s competitions covering everything above and much more including fancy dress and a pet competition.
