Live Family Entertainment

Yorkshire Dales Food Festival


Each year we host a specially selected line up of Live Entertainment and Performing Arts, ranging from highly acclaimed Hypnotists and Magicians to top-rated Comedians.

Catch out our performers on the main stage, where you can pull up a deck chair, set down your picnic blanket and grab some food before watching the show.

Keep your eyes peeled for our roaming attractions making their way around the site as well, and be sure to grab a photo!
