 We are delighted to announce our annual Cheese Festival, Celebrating Local Produce will be returning from Friday 6 to Monday 9 October 2023.

 

Cheese Festival Logo 2023

 

The festival celebrates the incredible produce of the Dales – cheese very much included! – with local businesses throughout the National Park hosting their own special events, menus and tastings to mark the occasion. One weekend may not be long enough to pack in everything delicious that the Dales has to offer, but we’re going to give it a good try.

Look out for cheesey bites and themed dishes in local cafes and restaurants, demos using local produce, cookery courses, dining experiences, Yorkshire gin and ales, specially created dairy ice creams and sorbets, jams, jellies and chutneys, locally reared meat on menus, and the chance to meet the makers.

Events will be held by businesses located around the Yorkshire Dales. Details are also listed on the Yorkshire Dales Cheese Festival Facebook page.
