Lincolnshire Wolds Outdoor Festival - Explore the Great Outdoors

3rd Lincolnshire Wolds Outdoor Festival returns this May

A popular celebration of the natural beauty and attractions of the Wolds will return for a 3rd time this May, with the return of the Lincolnshire Wolds Outdoor Festival.

The festival, which started in 2022, will run from 11-27 May, and is designed to encourage people to get out and explore the wonderful Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, whilst participating in a variety of activities and learning more about the deep history that lies within the area.

The two-week festival will have over 100 events and activities taking place across the Wolds, with many of them being free of charge or at a reduced cost.

There will be things for people of all ages to take part in, with many of the activities designed to provide people the opportunity to learn new skills and gain new hobbies that they may not usually try.

Planned activities include gliding, archery, axe throwing, guided walks, mountain biking, farm safaris, bushcraft and much more.

One highlight of the festival will be an event taking place on Sunday 12 May at Stourton Woods, which offers a fun day out and an opportunity for people to get a taste of some of the activities that will be available across the festival.

Some events will require booking in advance, so it is recommended to do so as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Up to date details of the events and activities, along with booking forms, can be found at

The Festival is ran collaboratively by a steering group of organisations, including: Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service, The Ramblers, Active Lincolnshire, Stourton Estates, South Ormsby Estate, Lincolnshire County Council, East and West Lindsey District Councils; with East Lindsey District Council serving as lead delivery partner.

Councillor Adam Grist, portfolio holder for market towns and the rural economy at East Lindsey District Council, said: “It is amazing that the Outdoor Festival has been able to return for a third year, with another varied and jam-packed schedule for people to explore and enjoy.

“The events provide residents and visitors alike with the opportunity to learn more about this stunning landscape that make up such a large part of our district and county, and to sample the offers of some of our fantastic local businesses and food and drink providers.

“We have another exciting schedule organised, and I hope that people will come along and enjoy some of the activities and events, perhaps discover some new skills and hobbies, and certainly take in the incredible surroundings of the Wolds.”
