A huge thanks to everyone who came to York Beer Festival and helped to make it our best ever.

We hoped that the new location on York Knavesmire would prove an attraction and it proved to be so with more people attending than last year.

If you can spare a moment to let us have your feedback please click on the FEEDBACK tab and make your comments anonymously. We very much look forward to starting preparations for next year’s festival and will let people know on this website and social media (@beerfestyork) when we have definite dates confirmed.
