SUPFEST. It’s all about SUP, family, friends, relaxing, camping, live music, adventure presentations and of course SUP races, games and fun competitions.
Established in 2016, SUPFEST is becoming the must-go event for the paddling community. It takes place every May in Cumbria, the Lake District.
This year’s event is going to be bigger and better, so bring your paddleboard, bring your friends, meet new friends and relax – it’s SUPFEST.
Dates:24-27 May, 2024
Location: Drybeck Farm, Armathwaite, Carlisle, Cumbria CA4 9ST
Ticketing: We’ve changed the format for 2024. Now you can buy festival tickets without having to camp on site. If you are planning to camp however, don’t forget to book your camping pitch as well. (You can buy tickets and camping at the same time)
Safety: Wearing PDF’s on the water is compulsory for kids and we recommend that adults do the same. Well behaved dogs are welcome but only in the campsite field not on river. There are plenty of lovely walks to be had off site. Paddling on the river is not permitted before 9am or after 6pm. (we like to give the local wildlife a chance to take their kids out for dinner)
Finally open BBQ’s and fires, fireworks sky lanterns are not permitted on site. Basically, if it can produce sparks its a no no.
Camping/van camping: Facilities on the campsite are basic: There are cold water taps with washing up area and composting toilets. We are also hoping to have some very basic showering facilities for 2024. (But recommend packing your DIY shower kits just in case)If you’re bringing a caravan or camper van, we now have a dedicated field with waste water disposal tanks. There are no electric hook ups on site, so charge your batteries beforehand.
On-site catering: Once again, we will have on-site caterers, so if you don’t feel like cooking, you’ll be able to grab food on the go. Lake District Coffee will also be on site for the duration of the festival, for a caffeine fix. The Barn Bar will be open from 6pm every night,
What’s new for 2024: Health and wellness village, new riverside stage, more workshops, more demos more fun.
