It’s been a week of tasty treats, fabulous demonstrations and exciting workshops, and the festival is drawing to a close for another year.
But there’s still so much fun to be had for the final weekend! As part of the finale celebrations, the festival will be marking the 70th anniversary of York’s twinning with Dijon with a chance to experience authentic produce from Burgundy, France.
The Mayors of York will also be at the festival Demonstration area on Saturday, with an opportunity to chat and take photos.
