Keswick Beer Festival 2022 Sponsor


We’re delighted to announce that, this year, Keswick Adventures is sponsoring a beer at the annual Keswick Beer Festival!

After a long day out and about in the water and on the fells, our team loves a good pint to wind down and discuss the day’s adventures. So sponsoring a beer seemed to be the perfect way of supporting this popular local event.

About the Keswick Beer Festival

The Keswick Beer Festival was first launched in 1997 at Keswick Rugby Club, starting from humble beginnings but soon growing to be the biggest beer festival in the north! It now welcomes around 6,000 visitors each year, over two days, and is always sold out. If you want to experience the fantastic weekend for yourself, make sure you book your tickets in advance.

After a hiatus in 2020 and 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Beer Festival is back in 2022 for its 24th year. It still takes place, as it has done every year, at Keswick Rugby Club, and you’ll be able to sample one of 200 beers or 20 ciders, many of which hail from the numerous fantastic Lake District breweries.

There are other tipples on offer, too, plus food to keep your energy up for the day (and night) ahead!

Beer on a bar

For entertainment, you can expect a great line-up, which includes festival regulars, The mOObs, who perform a good mix of Northern indie, rock, and classic pop. You’ll also see Groovetrain – a funksoul supergroup – and The Kasios, a local group whose main aim is to get you up dancing on Saturday night!

The festival opens at 11am on Friday the 3rd of June. Good weather means you can take advantage of the large field of Keswick Rugby Club, overlooking the stunning scenery that Keswick is famous for. If it’s a bit wet out, or if you just fancy a change, a massive marquee will keep you dry.

Children can accompany adults until 5pm, but the festival is for over-18s only after that. Please note that dogs aren’t permitted.

Enjoy a Weekend of Fun

This year, the Keswick Beery Festival runs over the bank holiday weekend, so you’ve got plenty of opportunities to enjoy a long weekend in the beautiful Lake District. Why not build up an appetite for a pint or two with a day on the water with Keswick Adventures? Ghyll scramblingcanyoning and raft building are just some of the activities we run around Keswick. Book your adventure and don’t forget to say hi when you see us at the beer festival later in the day!
