York Spring Fair & Food Festival – which brings together one of the largest vintage funfairs seen in North Yorkshire for many years, and a food festival showcasing the very best artisan products from Yorkshire and beyond – is set to return to York Racecourse in 2022.
York Spring Fair & Food Festival 2022 will take place in the Clocktower Enclosure on York’s iconic Knavesmire from Friday 27th May to Sunday 5th June – in school half-term week and the combined Spring Bank Holiday and Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend.
The event made its debut in May this year, welcoming over 25,000 visitors in the 10 days it was open. More than 30 food and drink stands, attended the event along with 14 vintage funfair rides and stalls for all ages to enjoy.
Next year’s York Spring Fair & Food Festival promises to be even bigger, with a stage playing live music and a big top hosting family entertainment – not to mention more vintage funfair rides, traders and street food. A special programme of entertainment is being planned for the Platinum Jubilee Weekend.
Co-organiser of the event, Johnny Cooper was delighted with the first year’s attendance. “It was great to see how many people visited us, after what has been a tough few months. The food and drink element really complimented the vintage funfair and the customer feedback was excellent.”
James Cundall, co-organiser explains the new additions to York Spring Fair & Food Festival for 2022. “We are thrilled to be adding live entertainment to next year’s event and plan to bring our big top tent to host an array of entertainment daily. There will also be a stage for live music every evening to allow you to sit back with a drink and some food and soak up the atmosphere.”
Many of last year’s traders, who welcomed the return to live events following lockdown, have already signed up for 2022. Applications for York Spring Fair & Food Festival 2022 will be open before Christmas and exhibitors are advised to register their interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr Murray’s Scotch Eggs, one of this year’s traders said “We had a great time, thought it was exceptionally well organised and business was brisk. We’re looking forward to returning to York Racecourse next year.”
York Spring Fair & Food Festival will be open daily from Friday 27th May to Sunday 5th June 2022 in the Clocktower Enclosure at York Racecourse. Tickets will go on sale in the new year. For any further information please contact email@example.com.
