Taste Cumbria Cockermouth is now firmly on the foodie calendar as the highlight of the Taste Festival season.

Held over the last weekend in September, our flagship event is the largest and has proudly been featured as one of the top food festivals by both The Guardian and The Telegraph!

Now in its 8th year, the event will be held over the 23rd and 24th September and will once again see local shops, hotels and pubs join forces for a weekend long culinary celebration which last year attracted 40,000 visitors!

This year’s festival will be the biggest and best yet, combining the usual producers market, food to eat now area, kid’s activities, beer festival, music and comedy, pop up restaurant, chef demonstrations and masterclasses. There will also be a few exciting new additions for 2017 with more details to be released in the coming weeks!
