York Residents Festival is back! It’s that time of the year for the city of York to say thank you to its residents.

Organised by Visit York, part of Make It York, and sponsored by Grand Central, the 25th York Residents Festival takes place on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 January.

It’s a great opportunity to discover and explore the city’s huge range of attractions – for free!


York Residents Festival is open to York residents and York students who have a valid YorkCard or student ID – you’ll need one card per person.

You can get a YorkCard (£6 adults, free for young people up to 18, £10 for people who work in York, but are not resident in the city) at York Explore – full details here.
