Flowers of the Dales Festival

Come and enjoy a whole host of wonderful wildflower related events at venues across the Yorkshire Dales from March to October!

The Flowers of the Dales Festival Programme has a wide variety of events. With guided walks, identification courses, art exhibitions, children's craft activities, bug hunts and 'grow wild' activities, there's something for everyone!

The Yorkshire Dales is home to a fantastic range of wildflowers, and it's a stronghold for many rare or nationally scarce plant and animal species. The Festival aims to celebrate the glorious range of wildflowers, their habitats, and the species they support.

By helping you to discover and enjoy the incredible Yorkshire Dales landscape for yourself, we hope you can spread the word. This will help the Yorkshire Dales to be valued and appreciated in years to come, and remain a truly special place indeed.
