The Cockermouth event brings about 40,000 visitors and nearly £3 million benefit into the local economy. There were strong crowds in Kirkby Lonsdale - the most recent town to be added to the showcase - over the Easter weekend, and an estimated 15,000 people came to the Ulverston event in May.
The county’s biggest and best foodie event will be heading to the harbour town of Whitehaven for a summer extravaganza over the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd July.
Taste Cumbria is a showcase for all that is great about food and drink in Cumbria and the line-up for Whitehaven will be no exception. Around 40 producers will be selling their wares, and some of the county’s best chefs will be demonstrating their talents. Plans are also being made for a beer and prosecco tent, kids activities, live music and much more to be announced.
