Visit the Dales



Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival
Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival

The beautiful Yorkshire Dales form the backdrop for a fantastic range of festivals, galas, agricultural shows and large scale events over several days, weeks or even months every year from a wide range of event providers. 

Whether you are looking for music, arts, books, walking or even scarecrows, there will be a festival for you. And if you want a real slice of Dales farming life, then a visit to a traditional agricultural show is not to be missed.
