Chocolate Festival

Taster Festival

Main Festival

That’s a wrap for 2019! We had a fantastic time at our Main Festival over it’s ten days in September. Hundreds of you enjoyed our Taste and Drinks trails while streetfood and demonstrations proved as popular as ever. St Sampsons Square was also host to our Fizz Bar and Grazing cafe as well as evening events including Gin and Wine Fairs. Weekend trader marquees gave the opportunity for small traders to have a place in the heart of the festival while Fossgate played host to our Saturday market again.

Over in our Entertainment Marquee the live music from Mindfest was a hit and helped York Mind raise over three thousand pounds for a fantastic cause, we were also very pleased to continue our partnership with Macmillan of course. Our schools program gave around 700 school children from York the opportunity to get hands on with where their food comes from and we had great feedback from those of you who enjoyed our Food Factory activities.

We hope you enjoyed the program of events and are looking forward to sharing our plans with you for 2020 in due course. As a not for profit organisation we appreciate all the support of our many festival partners and contributors, without whom it wouldn’t be possible to deliver so many different elements of the festival for York. See you in 2020!
