Festival Village / Crow Park

The Festival Village is located on the shores of Derwentwater at Crow Park, and is the heart of the Keswick Mountain Festiva. The Festival Village is packed full of exhibitor displays, interactive demonstrations, taster activites, local food stalls, the Tirol Mountain Hut and a main stage hosting a live-music line-up in the evening. It is the hub from where many of your great adventures begin and the perfect place to get in the mood for outdoor action.
With a Festival Village Pass you can enjoy the activities (listed below), live music and talks in the Adventure Theatre on Crow Park. 


NEW! Live music on the Festival Village

For the first time at the Keswick Mountain Festival we’ll party in the outdoors! After a day in the Mountains you'll be able to chill out and enjoy the music with a backdrop of the sun setting over the surrounding views of Catbells, Skiddaw and the Borrowdale Valley.


The Festival Village is FREE to enter between 10am and 6pm.  To access the Village from 6pm you will need a Festival Pass.
Open Hours: Friday 16th - Sunday 18th May, from 10:00 - 22:30 (17:00 Sunday).
