York Beer & Cider Festival 2019
Wed Sep 18 @ 5.00 pm - Sat Sep 21 @ 11.00 pm£5 – £15.50
Put the dates in your diaries – we’re back on York Knavesmire this year from 18th – 21st September
Like last year, we’ll be holding the festival in a huge marquee in the all new racecourse enclosure – directly opposite the grandstand.
So book some time off work; check out hotels B&B’s or campsites; make your travel plans & get your train tickets or stick YO23 1EX into your satnav and look forward to a September break – taking in Yorkshire’s largest beer festival and all the attractions of the beautiful historic city of York – which was recently voted the UK’s favourite city according to a recent YouGov poll.
Our event is everything a great festival should be – forward looking; inclusive; grand in scale and most importantly welcoming. It has the reputation as one of the friendliest beer festivals in the UK and this is reflected in the wide and diverse type of visitors it attracts – not just from the UK but from all over the world.
York Beer Festival has a vast choice – over 500 beers and ciders and perries including a UK keykeg bar and a foreign beer bar with beers from all over the world. There’s something for all tastes – with world wines, meads, prosecco and York gins all available too.
There will be a huge beer garden as usual as well as a great selection of takeaway cuisines to suit all tastes including high quality vegetarian options.
To make things go with a swing we have a great line-up of live music at most sessions featuring a roster of talented local artists performing a wide range of different musical genres.
The special bus service from York Pullman, which proved so popular last year, will return for the duration of the festival – with an hourly return timetable, departing from York Station.
Please note that there will be free admission to the festival from 8pm on Saturday for the last 3 hours of the event – this is due to the fact that there will be a considerably smaller selection of beers and cider on offer so we don’t feel it’s right to charge full price entry. You will still need to pay for a programme and souvenir glass.
Wednesday, 18 September @ 5pm-11pm
Thursday, 19 September to Saturday, 21 September @ 12pm-11pm
