September 19th to 28th: Quaff and Scoff through York

Follow the Festival across the city. Join Oz Clarke of the 3 Wine Men beside the Minster. Follow a taste trail offering samples from delis and restaurants. A daily specialist market spills outs from its traditional base on St Sampson’s square through the streets. Alternatively join an intimate dinner offered by locals in their homes. Or have supper in some of the city’s historic buildings such as the Guildhall, Treasurer's House and Bar Convent.

There are food tastings; cookery demonstrations and hands on workshops for both adults and children. You could learn to forage with an expert, or visit Yorkshire food and drink producers. For Real Ale lovers, follow the Festival’s Ale Trail or enjoy the annual York CAMRA Beer and Cider Festival.


Please come back later

Free entry to the markets, the sampling stand, festival bar and most demos. Specific events including tastings, dinners etc. are ticketed at various prices.
