From small beginnings come great things, they say. No truer words are spoken of Kendal Mountain Festival.
Founded in the early 80s by a group of like-minded friends, today it has grown into one of the world’s leading and award-winning outdoor adventure festivals.
Kendal Mountain Festival today attracts thousands of outdoor enthusiasts in addition to the gathering of media industry experts, top athletes, the elite of equipment manufacturers and brands, artists, photographers, adventurers, explorers and inspirational speakers. Together they share legendary tales of adventure, wild stories and celebrate the very best in outdoor and adventure sports culture. Visitor numbers have soared to over 13,000, rising year on year, yet the festival’s ethos and foundations remain constant – to inspire more people to explore, enjoy and represent mountains, wilderness and their cultures.
Kendal Mountain Festival sets the standard as an innovative, inclusive and creative celebration of everything outdoors.
