1 min read

Usually held in May, the Keswick Mountain Festival attracts thousands of outdoor enthusiasts every year. Visitors can sign up to take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, fell-walking and archery. Increasingly popular are the sporting events such as the triathlons, open-water swims, trail runs, cycle sportives and hiking challenges. The three-day event also offers live music, high-profile speakers, skills workshops and a wide range of other attractions from its ‘Festival Village’ base in Crow Park on the shores of Derwentwater. And, in true summer festival style, there’s a dedicated campsite – at Springs Farm, just a 10-minute walk from Crow Park.
