The Eskdale Show is a traditional country show set against the backdrop of the stunning Eskdale Fells, which is always held on the last Saturday in September. There are classes for Herdwick sheep, foxhounds and terriers, along with hound trails, where trained hounds follow the scent of aniseed over the surrounding fells. There is also local handicrafts, children's sports events, beer tent and fell races.

This is the premier show for Herdwicks in the country and the tension runs high as the judging begins. Acquaintances are renewed and new friends are made and the show is well attended by locals and visitors alike. Links to the past are maintained with displays of old farm machinery and engines, wrought iron working and wood turning. With plenty to keep the kids amused and a tent full of tea and cakes, the Eskdale Show is a day out for all the family!
