The Cumberland Sausage Festival returns to Muncaster Castle for the third year!
A three day celebration of good food, drink and all things Cumbrian, over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend.
With celebrity chefs, cookery demos, sausage competitions, entertainment for all ages and of course the food! To sample, to buy to eat and to take home for later.
As well as purveyors of the famous Cumberland sausage, the Festival welcomes a range of specialist and gourmet food and drink suppliers from Cumbria and Northern Britain, plus a selection of craft and giftware to complete your retail experience.
At a time of year when Muncaster is usually looking its best, the Sausage Festival is a brilliant time to visit. Normal entrance charges apply (no additional cost for the Festival) and FREE to Friends of Muncaster!
