Festival of the Outdoors

A month-long celebration of The Outdoor City

Sheffield is the city where nature and culture intertwine. As the 4th biggest city in the country we have culture galore, but when you combine that with 61% greenspace and some of the best walking, climbing, biking and running you could possibly wish for (along with 5 rivers running through the city) you'll see we have a pretty important relationship with the outdoors.

And so every March the city celebrates the days getting longer, drier, and warmer so that we can enjoy the unique place that is Sheffield, by hosting the Festival of the Outdoors.

The Outdoor City teams up with everything from large scale international sporting events to small scale community gatherings; from photo walks to some of the worlds hardest bouldering problems; from outdoor markets to film festivals.
