Lake District Events

There's never a dull moment in the Lakes; from spectacular street festivals such as Kendal Mintfest, and the nationally-acclaimed Westmorland Show, to the annual Grasmere Sports, with its Westmorland wrestling, hound trailing and fell running, there is always something happening close by.

Often under-cover and always well-attended, Cumbria's long and eclectic calendar of events provides the perfect antidote to a damp day. So much so that when we compiled a compendium of things to do, we reached more than 60!
