After its success last year, Our City Festival has announced its return for 2023.
This vibrant festival again aims to unite all York residents, groups, and communities in a celebration of diversity, inclusivity, and a collective voice.
Our City Festival will return to the York Explore Library on Saturday 9 September from 11:30am to 3:30pm.
The festival is supported by City of York Council.
Aiming to engage with York’s diverse communities, Our City Festival invites everyone to share their voices, experiences and stories. The festival seeks to ensure that all residents feel valued in their city and that York continues to progress as a friendly and welcoming community.
It hopes to create an environment where hate crime reporting is increased and bystander apathy is reduced.
The ‘fringe style approach’ festival will feature activities and events held in different locations around the city centre.
There will be a performance area in the Library Lawn, where music, dance and theatre will be staged. Other programming will include workshops, talks and stalls.
The full festival schedule is yet to be revealed, but visit the Our City Festival website to keep updated.
