Support Family Fun

Kendal Festival of Food aims to deliver an engaging and entertaining family festival village that helps to inspire and educate children of all ages about food provenance, healthy eating and cooking, whilst also offering a fun-filled action-packed line up of activities and entertainment that families will enjoy together.

The response to our first Family Festival Village in 2014 was phenomenal and what set out as a small kids zone became a mini food festival all of its own for children and their families.

If you run a local business aimed at engaging with children and young families and would like to know more about how you can get involved in running or sponsoring a family activity at future events, we’d love to hear from you.
