There are currently over thirty fantastic festivals in York each year. York City of Festivals exists to make York more eventful, ensuring vibrancy and diversity within York's year-round programme of festivals. Our approach to festivals is to encourage partnership working and promote community participation. By contributing to the success of existing festivals and developing new festivals we aim to provide wonderful and unforgettable experiences for visitors and residents alike.


Another important part of what we do is to support and advise festival co-ordinators on all aspects of putting on a great programme. You can find out more on our Toolkit pages.
