Keswick Mountain Festival

Fri 17 – Sun 19 May

Enjoy a fantastic mix of outdoor sports, activities and live music with the Keswick Mountain Festival.  Based in Crow Park on the banks of Derwentwater, each year the Festival inspires thousands of people to get outside and enjoy the outdoors.

With a variety of activities to choose from, there’s plenty of choice no matter what your age or ability. Families can take to the water, enjoy sporting activities and talks from the biggest names in outdoor adventure.

The more athletic can run, swim, cycle or combine all three in the triathlon, surrounded by the most stunning scenery and challenging terrain England has to offer. Races include 5-50k runs, open water swimming, triathlons, two cycling sportives and events for junior athletes. Inspiration comes in the form of top athletes, experts and local heroes in the speaker programme hosted at the theatre. Hear all about their adventures and pick up some tips for your own. 

Swing by the Festival Village for a bite to eat, a local ale or two and party the night away with live bands on the Festival stage.
