Yorkshire Glamping Festival 'Glampfest' returns to Knaresborough

Glampfest is coming back to Knaresborough next month.

A popular family festival held near Scotton is returning and set to almost double in number after a roaring success last season.

‘Glampfest’ is returning to the fields on Market Flat Lane from Friday 10th until Sunday 12th May.

The event, which has been running since 2017, offers campers and day trippers a range of activities, live music from local talent and various street food outlets.

It was inaugurated by camping enthusiasts James and Sarah Martin to bring their Glawning customers together.  

And this year, the event expects just under 3,000 people - almost double the head count in 2023. 

Director Sarah said:

“We’re so pleased Glampfest has blossomed into such a well-loved event on the calendar. 

“We have glawning owners coming from all over the UK in addition to amazing support from the local communities. 

“It’s a festival for the whole family to enjoy with a wide range of activities, live music from local and far-flung performers, a range of street food and lots of lovely glamping set ups. 

“We’d love to make Glampfest 2024 the biggest and best yet.”

Glampfest 2024 will have a dedicated Sports Zone, Zen Zone, Acoustic Lounge, Vintage Photo Booth and Luxury Glamping Village. 

These are in addition to the well-loved elements of last years offering which saw a delicious variety of food and drink vendors, forest school, pirate storyteller, yoga, massage, crafts, face painting, PE sessions, silent disco, drum workshops, main stage bands, dog show, stalls of hand-crafted products, and lots of stunning camping setups to ogle.

This year’s event is also set to host culinary icon Karen Wright of Great British Bake Off fame. 

Karen will be showing the crowds how it’s done with demonstrations from her cookbook ‘Meals on the Move: A Campsite Cooking Journey’.

Motivational speaker, blogger and pro-age campaigner Siobhan Daniels AKA Retirement Rebel will also take to the stage to talk about her adventures.

And The Retro Camping Club Display will make their debut appearance for tours of their coveted vehicles so there really is something for everyone.

Day or weekend camping tickets are now available - you don’t need to own a Glawning to attend.
