DESCRIPTION
The programme for 2008 is already underway.

The remainder of the information on this site relates to the 2007 Festival and will remain here until we are able to post the 2008 programme in detail.

If you need any information in the meantime, whether it's about having a trade stand this year, sponsoring the Festival, taking part in the demonstration programme or simply about attending events, please call us on 01904 466687 or 01904 635149 or look on http://www.yorkfoodfestival.com.

There is no entrance fee to the Festival, most markets and events take place in the historic streets of York. Only specific events (usually Dinners and Tastings) are ticketed.

11th York Festival of Food and Drink

"Eating is about enjoyment. The Festival lunches, feasts and gourmet dinners are communal events in magnificent settings where people can talk, learn, and exchange an interest in good food”.
Michael Hjort, Festival Director

The Festival’s main focus is local and regional food and drink. The City is also an excellent touring base for gastronomic tours of the region.- see the Gourmet Yorkshire website.

This year the Festival wants to emphasise its educational programme, which runs in the Guildhall and the new Festival areas of the Coppergate centre and at Autumn Feast.

There is an extensive 10-day programme featuring:
  • tutored tastings - delivered by 'Slow Food North Yorkshire' (of both food and drink of all kinds)
  • an extensive range of Yorkshire and visiting markets,
  • themed lunches and dinners,
  • a diverse drinks programme (everything from champagne, wine and port through to whisky and real ale),
  • meal deals in many restaurants in the city,
  • hands on cookery workshops,
  • cookery competitions.
  • children's cookery.
  • community progamme.

Elsewhere in the city will be food festival events: cook book lunches, roving feasts, ale trails, meal deals, street cooking and street food from curry stalls and juice bars to soup kitchens and hog roasts.
