Taste Cumbria Cockermouth

Dates: Saturday 26 & Sunday 27 September 2020, with launch events on Friday 25 September 2020


Taste Cumbria Cockermouth in Allerdale is the Lake District’s leading food festival.
Held in the pretty market town of Cockermouth, the festival brings together more than 80 artisan food and drink producers, with a pop-up restaurant with a Michelin-starred chef and expert demonstrations from some of the best names in the business.

The first Taste Cumbria festival took place in 2010. Now its organiser, Allerdale Borough Council, is bringing you the same foodie fun in 2020 with extra attractions to keep everyone entertained.
Taste Cumbria in Cockermouth is now not just a great food festival – you can enjoy the Northbound music festival in the town over the same weekend too.

As well as all the producers’ stalls, there will be a small artisan makers market, a street party in the town’s Market Place that’s perfect for kids, as well as a live music stage on the banks of the River Derwent and comedy and bands in the evening in the town’s pubs.

Our secret pop-up restaurant and comedy night are ticketed events. Everything else is free unless stated.

Cockermouth, the birthplace of the poet William Wordsworth, is in a beautiful part of Allerdale, right on the edge of the English Lake District, and it’s a great place to eat, drink, shop and explore. It’s an ideal location for an amazing weekend – or even longer – with Taste Cumbria as the focus of your break.
