Woolfest 2020 - cancelled

Now planning for 2021 - Friday 25 June and Saturday 26 June 2021

The Original
British Festival of Wool

Woolfest was founded by members of The Wool Clip cooperative to provide a celebration of natural fibres and a showcase for the best of wool and wool crafts. It is all about creativity and design with beautiful quality, amazing colours, skilled craftsmanship and a huge enthusiasm for all things wool related. Woolfest is a great day out and was recognised as the Cumbria Tourism Event of the Year in 2012.

Thank you for finding us and welcome to the Woolfest website.

It is with great regret that we have decided to cancel Woolfest 2020. Sadly, coronavirus (Covid-19) is now affecting so many decisions in life. 

We have taken the difficult decision to cancel for 2020 and work on being back up and running for Friday 25 June and Saturday 26 June 2021. Over the years, we have put a huge amount of time and effort into creating a truly special event and our visitors, volunteers, stallholders and everyone involved have all played an amazing part in that. We plan to be back, as good as ever, next year.

Look out for information later in the year, when this will once again be the place to catch up on what happened in years gone by and to gather all the information you need to plan your visit.

Our hope for you all is that you stay safe, stay well and that we will all meet again in Cockermouth in June 2021.
