Cheese Festival '17

More information coming soon over the next few weeks.

The Yorkshire Dales Cheese Festival is set to be a fantastic celebration of local produce - and everything and anything cheese! 23rd to 30th September 2017.

The Cheese Festival will be held on Saturday and Sunday 23-24 September at the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes and will see a multitude of producers and aficionados from across the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Nidderdale area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offering product tastings as well as staging cookery, cheese-making, grading and drink-pairing demonstrations.

This will then lead into a further five days (25-29 September) of events right across the Yorkshire Dales with restaurants, cafes, farms and attractions coming together to champion the fantastic range of food that is produced on the doorstep.

Funding for this project has been secured from the Rural Development Programme for England, funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD): Europe investing in rural areas.
