As the sun is finally set to return this weekend, why not head down to this York Riverside festival that is taking place this weekend? It’s the family event of the year at York set with a stunning backdrop.
The Boatyard York is found in Bishopthorpe and is hosting its first-ever summer festival on Saturday 6th August. Expect live music from local bands and musicians, tasty street food including wood-fire pizza and family fun like a Punch & Judy show, face painting and more.
All this will be framed by the stunning river view and will run from 11am to 7pm. And, if the rain tries to ruin the day there is a HUGE double peaked tipi where the party can carry on regardless – so there is no excuse to miss York’s Riverside Festival.
Fancy getting on the river? There will be kayak rides and boat hire on the day along with ping pon and volleyball (which aren’t on the water FYI)
Organiser, Eva Brindley, said: “There will be wood-fired pizza on offer as well as summery drinks from the horsebox bar which, amongst other things, will be celebrating the G&T, with the gin being provided by our extremely local gin maker, Pink House Distillery – distilled in Bishopthorpe.
“A truly family-oriented day, we have a Punch & Judy show, face-painting, fare stalls and games, ping pong and volleyball so there will be something for everyone.
“Dogs are very welcome as usual and if the British summer doesn’t deliver, we have a huge double peaked tipi where the party can still go ahead.”
Run by the owners of Bosun’s Restaurant and riverside cafe Bosun’s Oven, the event is free entry for everyone and is found just south of close to the River Ouse at The Boatyard in Ferry Lane Bishopthorpe
Make sure you don’t miss this incredible riverside festival this weekend, which will be fun for all the family.
