Motorway at night


Taste Cumbria’s flagship festival in Cockermouth!

Taste Cumbria will be back in its home town on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September 2022.

A great range of attractions are on the menu, giving visitors the chance to eat, drink, shop and explore.

There will be all the things you’ve come to expect from Taste Cumbria’s flagship event which has been a firm favourite in the county’s event calendar since 2010. It was created to keep Cockermouth on the map following massive floods which devastated the town centre.

Here’s a taste of the fabulous festival line-up – all of this is FREE to attend and ticketed events will be announced closer to the time:

  • Producers’ Market on Main Street
  • Street party on Market Place
  • Drinks tent and outdoor picnic area with live music all weekend
  • Hot food court
  • The demo stage with some great local chefs
  • Fairground rides 
  • Children’s activities with Rainbow Wishes Foundation

Trader pitches are still available for the Producers’ Market and hot food court. For more information, email Priority will be given to Allerdale and other Cumbrian producers but we welcome enquiries from other areas. To submit your application for this event, please click on the booking form here.
