North York Moors - Events & Festivals

From the UK’s oldest surviving gooseberry show to an annual World War II extravaganza weekend hosted by the world’s best-known heritage railway, the National Park buzzes with events and festivals – often of the most eccentric kind!

But you can also find the more regular music, food and sport festivals, events and summer country shows across the Park’s many beautiful towns and villages – and the National Park Authority itself also organises an annual programme of events, ranging from art exhibitions to treasure hunts and high-octane adventures for families, and including craft workshops where you can make anything from a quilt to a hedgehog house.
