York Spring Fair and Food Festival To Return in 2022


York Spring Fair and 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.

Next years festival will take place in the Clocktower Enclosure on York’s iconic Knavesmire. It’ll run from Friday 27th May to Sunday 5th June, over school half-term week. It’s also 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. As did 14 vintage funfair rides and stalls for all ages to enjoy.

“Even bigger”

Next year’s York Spring Fair and 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 also 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.”

Mr Murray’s Scotch Eggs, is one of this year’s traders. They 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.”

Tickets for the York Spring Fair and Food Festival will go on sale in the new year.
