The original British Wool Festival
Established in 2005
Woolfest was founded to provide a showcase and a celebration of the best of wool and wool crafts. The event is all about creativity and design with beautiful quality, amazing colours and skilled craftsmanship. It is also a great day out and was recognised in 2012 when Woolfest won the Cumbria Tourism Event of the Year Award.
Woolfest 2017 will be on Fri 23 and Sat 24 June.
Woolfest offers a showcase of talents
A wealth of advice | A bank of knowledge | A treat for the senses | A treasure trove of natural fibres
Whatever your wool interests - Woolfest is for you.
Please browse the site and keep in touch - whether you’re planning a visit, want to know what’s happened in the past or would like to be part of next year’s Woolfest - all the information you need should be here. But please note, Woolfest is not really a suitable venue for dogs. We have livestock to consider and would prefer it if you didn't bring your dog to the show.
Stands at Woolfest 2017 have now been allocated but if you are interested in having a stand in the future do get in touch for more information.
