Live music will also provide the relaxing entertainment.
The New York Brass Band will be performing on the Friday Night, while Saturday night’s audience will hear from a hand-picked selection of local artists.
A bar will serve drinks for the rest of the evening, with all funds raised helping to look after the York Museum Gardens.
Richard Saward, head of visitor experience and commercial for York Museums Trust, said: “What better way to mark midsummer this year than to spend it with friends enjoying lovely food and drink in the beautiful setting of York Museum Gardens?
“All the money raised will help us look after this very special space in the heart of the city which we know is so important to so many people.”
Tickets cost £25, and include a welcome drink, homemade Yorkshire picnic hamper including pies, salads and dips and live music entertainment.
