Visitors can participate in demonstrations and hands-on activities for festival of food and drink for 10 days, as well as taste trails and wine tastings, markets, and street food. Other festivities stretch city-wide and into some of York’s most iconic and historic buildings, with marquees and live music until 9pm in Parliament St and St Sampson’s Square.

This year’s programme spans the old city centre, with visitors able to participate in free cooking workshops (the Food Factory) at the Museum Gardens and the Coppergate Centre. There are two pathways that lead the adventurous from the Minster to the Castle and through the doors of dozens of artisan food producers, delis, and eateries.

Only the trails and a small number of events are ticketed at the Festival. “We are very cognizant of restricted funds and have been anxious to make many of the events, such as the Food Factory, free,” stated director Michael Hjort. Over a thousand Key Stage 2 schoolchildren will be able to attend the free programmes. Avocado Events will also be at the festival on Saturday, October 1st, with a variety of free children’s activities.
