Coniston Country Fair is a traditional agricultural and countryside fair set on the shores of Coniston Water and against the magnificent backdrop of Coniston Old Man. The entertainment at Coniston Hall will include a Herdwick sheep and sheepdog show and shows for fell foxhounds, terriers, beagles and lurchers, as well as traditional Cumbrian walking sticks.

Sports include a traditional Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling competition, archery and terrier racing throughout the afternoon. The Coniston Country Fair also features a six mile senior fell race from the show field on the shores of Coniston water to the top of Coniston Old Man and back.

The Fell Pony Display Team will be giving two demonstrations during the day. Visitors will also have an opportunity to meet their ponies and discuss all matters relating to fell ponies on their stand. Ridgeside Falconry will perform two falconry displays and they will also be bringing a large number of birds of prey for people to view and handle.

Children will be able to compete in the sports and an egg throwing competition and can bring their pets along for the Children's Pet Show. Local hang gliding enthusiasts will be leaping off Coniston Old Man and landing near the showfield. A craft marquee will offer some superb Lake District crafts and there will be trade stands, refreshments, amusements and much more.
