The Yorkshire Dales Cheese Festival celebrates the incredible produce of the Yorkshire Dales – cheese very much included! Local businesses throughout the National Park are hosting special events, menus, and tastings to mark the occasion from Thursday 7th to Sunday 10th October 2021.
As much as we’re disappointed that we won’t be kicking off the weekend at our Visitor Centre this year with our huge Cheese Festival Marquee, here’s how we are getting involved…and we absolutely can’t wait!
