Flowers of the Dales Festival
Wildflower & nature events for everyone!
Flowers of the Dales Festival brings wonderful wildflower and nature events to venues across the Yorkshire Dales. Events include guided walks, identification courses, art workshops and exhibitions, lambing, butterfly and bee courses, bat walks and much more!
We are unable to bring you our usual programme of events in 2021 - but visit our Events page for information about upcoming online and in-person events. We hope to return with a full programme of events next year.
Wildflower habitats of the Yorkshire Dales
Wildflowers can be found all over the Yorkshire Dales - in hay meadows, ancient woodlands, heather-clad moors and amongst the limestone pavement. These special habitats and their wildflowers provide food and shelter to a wealth of wildlife – including many rare species of insects, birds and mammals.
By helping you to discover and enjoy these wonderful wildflowers for yourself, we hope you can understand and appreciate their importance, and help us to protect them for future generations.
Thousands of people have done just that since the first Flowers of the Dales Festival in 2009, and with more exciting events to choose from this year we hope to see you celebrating all things wild and wonderful!
Help save our precious wildflower meadows.
