Otley Walking Festival 2020 Saturday 27 June to Sunday 5 July

Welcome to Otley Walking Festival 2020.  Our website is under redevelopment and will be fully available shortly.

Planning has already started for the 2020 Otley Walking Festival – the 20th since starting as a one-off Millennium event in 2000. It would have been the 21st but, sadly, foot and mouth struck in 2001 and the countryside was closed to all walkers. We are anticipating that the 2020 Otley Walking Festival will have a programme of some 50 walks and themed evening events with the return of some old favourites and plenty of new walks and events. As always, there really is something for everyone, from short strolls to challenging walks, from historic Otley town centre to peaceful scenic Wharfedale countryside.

If you would like more information about the Festival or would like to help in any way, please contact us by email  otleywalkingfestival@mail.com or by text to the Festival Office on 07564 625129.

We look forward to meeting up with you during the Festival.


We are hoping that we will be able to hold the Walking Festival this year. We will be monitoring the government advice closely and will also take advice from the Ramblers as we are an associate member of the organisation. The paper programme will be available for Easter. The links below are for the Government advice site and the Ramblers advice site. We will update the information here when any is made available. https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response https://www.ramblers.org.uk/volunteer-zone/coronavirus.aspx
