A huge thanks to you all for making the 2017 York Beer Festival the most successful yet.

It may be all over for another year but we hope we left you with some great memories of good times and excellent beers and ciders at this year’s event. Can we also thank our huge volunteer force of over 200 tireless heroes without whom the festival could never take place.

We’re always looking for more willing people to step up to the plate for next year’s event – so if you liked what you saw and want to get involved then by all means drop an email to We start preparations for next year’s event in January 2018.

If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities including the music stage and also in applying for catering or retail  pitches then please use the same address.

Finally – if you want to see the LocAle winners so you can seek them out and try them in York’s pubs then click on the relevant tab.
