This fantastic event is great for families and foodies. Taking place on 20th and 21st July, this event attracts people from across Yorkshire and beyond due to the fun and inclusive atmosphere. This year’s chef lineup features The Hairy Bikers, Brian Turner, Mary Berry and more. These kitchen experts will be sharing their cooking and comedy on The Big Top Cookery stage.
We spoke to the organisers of Yorkshire Dales Food & Drink Festival who sum up some of the experiences on offer: “With 200+ exhibitors of street food, artisan produce, homewares and craft and makers, you can find something for then and something to take home. Also, our mini beer tent, tipple talks and tasting tent where traders can explain and show off their wonderful products. After you’ve watched a few demos, you can try your hand at some of our workshops, which include pizza making, flower crown making and woodwork.”
Attending this event is the perfect opportunity to have fun as a family. The adults may enjoy the variety of food and drinks on offer while listening to live music featuring four different tribute acts. The children will not become bored as they can have fun at the vintage funfair, petting farm and be involved in the free kid’s workshops.
When asked what they hope visitors will get from attending the Yorkshire Dales Food & Drink Festival they comment: “We hope our visitors get a filled weekend full of food, drink & fun, and that they have tried or learnt something new over the weekend. It is a family festival and we aim to have something for the whole family to enjoy, whether it be trying to get a picture with The Hairy Bikers or tasting some samples from our exhibitors. It is not one to be missed!”
