York holds an annual Christmas festival that stretches from November all the way to the big day, and usually it never disappoints. Due to the duration of the event, you’ll be spoilt for choice in regards to things to do. One day you might find yourself enjoying a weekend of choir music, and the week after mellow out to a brass band. It’s very diverse and there’s even an ice trail, which is a must-do slice of entertainment.
There are also food stalls, craft stalls, stalls selling Yorkshire produce and much more so you’ll be able to keep your day varied and enjoy everything that York has to offer during this magical time of the year.
Despite it starting in November, the link to Christmas is undeniable, and Santa will be attending in his own little grotto so your children will definitely be pleased.
With such a variety of days to choose from, you might find yourself taking a visit more than once a year so you can get a full, immersive experience from what is on and what is available. The exact date for the York Christmas Festival hasn’t been disclosed yet but once it is, getting yourself there for a weekend will leave many happy memories lingering for a long time afterwards and you’ll probably even take a note of the date for the following year.
