Cheese Festival

Back by popular demand and now in it’s 3rd year the cheese festival, celebrating local produce is set to be brie…lliant.
This year we hope to have a fantastic and exciting cheese festival at the Wensleydale Creamery for 2 days. Following this, the week after we will be celebrating our local produce by getting local businesses around the Yorkshire Dales to really promote their fantastic local foods, ingredients and recipes, providing visitors and locals with a Yorkshire experience, authenticity and a real opportunity to learn about the true provenance of our food, our history and heritage, our wild life and natural beauty and we will promote the opportunities for the understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the Yorkshire Dales.
