Wakefield Festival of Rhubarb

20 February

Wakefield Festival of Rhubarb is an eight-day festival that is held starting at the end of January or the beginning of February.

The festival celebrates the early, "forced" "champagne" rhubarb that the area is known for.

It features rhubarb dishes, both savoury and sweet. There are also coach tours of the rhubarb forcing sheds.

Wakefield is the rhubarb capital of the UK, particularly known for its champagne rhubarb. Three towns all together -- Wakefield, Morley and Rothwell form the great Yorkshire Rhubarb Triangle, as known as the Pink Triangle.

The festival started in 1999. It used to run predictably from a Saturday to a Saturday, but departed from that in 2007. To know exactly when it is each year now, you have to check the Wakefield web site.
