The annual agricultural Kilnsey Show , which is held on the Tuesday after September Bank Holiday, is organised and run by the Upper Wharfedale Agricultural Society. The Show's setting is spectacular, with the show field lying in the shadow of the famous Kilnsey Crag, and an 8-minute fell race to the top of the Crag and back is one of the show's regular events.
For those interested in classical and light music, comedy and more thought provoking evenings there is the annual Grassington Festival , held for a fortnight in late June each year. This festival has now become internationally recognised for the quality and distinction of the performers which it attracts.
The Farmers' market is held on the third Sunday of each month in Grassington village square.
You can find excellent local food and other local products here.
