Shows, galas, and festivals

The beautiful Yorkshire Dales form the backdrop for a fantastic range of festivals, galas, agricultural shows and large scale events over several days, weeks or even months every year from a wide range of event providers. 

Whether you are looking for music, arts, books, walking or even scarecrows, there will be a festival for you. And if you want a real slice of Dales farming life, then a visit to a traditional agricultural show is not to be missed.

Where events have already taken place this year, we have added the dates for the following year if available.

Developing and promoting new events, festivals and attractions is one of the objectives agreed by the Authority and a wide range of local partner organisations in the National Park Management Plan 2019-24.

Our Vision

“Providing an outstanding range of benefits for the nation based on its natural resources, landscape and cultural heritage, which underpins a flourishing local economy”
