We're back at York Knavesmire
16th – 19th September 2020


Thanks to everyone who made last year’s York Beer Festival such a unqualified success. We were overwhelmed by the positive feedback from attendees on Yorkshire’s biggest beer festival and preparations are well underway for this year’s event to make better and bigger than ever.

Plan your visit

We look forward to welcoming you to Yorkshire’s largest beer festival in 2020 and all the attractions of the beautiful historic city of York – which was voted the UK’s favourite city according to a 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 will have a vast choice – last year over 400 beers and 100 ciders and perries were on offer including a UK keykeg bar and a foreign beer bar with beers from all over the world. There was 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 will 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.
