York Residents Festival

January 26 - January 27

Enjoy over 100 attractions, events and offers with a valid York Card or Student ID!

Organised by Make It York and sponsored by Grand Central, the York Residents Festival is your chance to explore the city and be a tourist for the weekend – for free! Now in its 24th year, this annual festival is our way of saying ‘thank you’ for the warm welcome you give to York’s visitors.

This year there’s chance to explore behind the scenes at a number of venues not usually open to the public, plus some great dining and retail offers.

York Residents Festival is open to all York Residents and York students who have a valid YorkCard or student ID – you’ll need one card per person. Remember that for some of the attractions, tours and events, you’ll need to pre-book and that some venues have limited free tickets and operate on a first come, first served basis.

YorkCards are available in York Explore Libraries or on the Library website.
