Kendal Mountain Festival

Kendal, Cumbria

Whether you’re into clawing your way up mountains, sliding down them, jumping off the top - or just watching others do it - this gathering of adventure sports fans is a must.


Kendal Mountain Festival has been going since the 1980s, and now over 10,000 people head for the Lake District town each November to catch up on all things adrenaline.

The event is truly international with filmmakers, adventurers and lecturers gathering from around the world. And it’s also renowned as the main social event for outdoor enthusiasts in the UK.
