If you love cheese, or even if you don’t, you’ll enjoy this event celebrating everything cheesy.

To start this wonderful event the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes will be hosting a two-day celebration of the Dales rich-cheese making heritage, with market stalls, cheese tasting, pairing and grading and cookery demonstrations on 15 and 16 September. There will also be family fun activities for you all to get stuck into.

There’ll be forty different events to entice you with a multitude of producers from the Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Beauty taking part. Restaurants, cafes, farms and attractions will be coming together over the nine days to champion the fantastic range of food that is produced on the doorstep. Everything from special cheese-themed menus to activities in dairying country to help you work up an appetite.

The whole thing will finish with the Beer and Beef Festival hosted by The Whole Roast Ox Co at Springhill Farm, Jervaulx, near Masham, on Saturday 22 September.
