Taste Cumbria Cockermouth

Saturday 24 & Sunday 25 September 2022

Festive cheer is definitely on the menu at this year’s Taste Cumbria Christmas festival in Cockermouth.

The event takes place in the heart of the town on Saturday 24 & Sunday 25 September There will be mince pies and mulled wine, colourful gifts and crafts, all served with a hefty helping of sparkle and glitz amid some of the prettiest Christmas lights in the county.

Throughout the two days there will be a packed producers’ market, a hot food court with meals and snacks, and live music on the festival stage. There will also be plenty of family activities with a fairground and children’s arty workshops. All around the town, the shops will be offering a fabulous array of gifts, food and drink, with everything visitors need for the festive season.

Now firmly established as the biggest and, arguably, the best foodie events in Cumbria, Taste Cumbria began in Cockermouth following the floods of 2009. Since then, events have taken place all over the county – the most recent being held in Maryport and Wigton for the first time this year.
