The Original British Wool Festival
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.

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.
