Penrith on a Plate

16 Jul, 2016

Now in its fifth year, the Eden Food & Farming Festival is a weeklong celebration of the fabulous food and beverages produced in Cumbria’s beautiful Eden Valley, one of England's prime agricultural heartlands. 

The festival starts on Sat 16 July 2016 with Penrith on a Plate, quite simply one of the most delicious days out in Cumbria! Set in the heart of our characterful, traditional market town, this food festival and family fun day is a fantastic chance for you to sample and buy the best of our district's fayre.

Food lovers and families alike can get up close and personal with our talented food and beverage producers, from artisan cheese makers to farmers. The day will include loads of foodie interest such as tastings and demonstrations from local chefs, roving music and entertainment, lashings of fun for kids, as well as a wide range of shopping opportunities with unique, independent retailers.

The festival then continues with a week of entertaining and educational events, culminating in the grand finale of the famous Penrith Show on Sat 23 July.
