One of the highlights of the year is “Daffodils at Rydal”. An annual event held in the 2nd and 3rd weekend of September to celebrate the arrival of spring.

Thousands of daffodils have been planted in the parks and gardens of Rydal which is named after the English village of Rydal home for many years of the poet William Wordsworth, famous for his poem “The Daffodils”.

Each year on the first Saturday in February Rydal plays host to the biggest little show in the west. The Rydal Show held at the Rydal Showground is a real country show, with horses, dogs, cattle, sheep, wood chopping, yard dog trials and traditional cooking and craft competitions and exhibitions.
