Held in the heart of York, on Parliament Street, The Yorkshire Halloween Festival will take place between 24th October – 1st November.


The Yorkshire Halloween Festival is a celebration of creativity and interactivity suitable for all the family!

As well as our well know large group of local artisans you will also find at the festival, a unique series of local makers who will be running workshops to entertain and encourage you to make and create – all with a Halloween/Autumnal theme.

We will also, for the first time, provide an attractive Tipi (Jorvik Tipis) in which we aim to create an inclusive sensory environment to host a series of accessible and creative events ( free, paid and open) and offer a Halloween
inspired sensory haven in the centre of York.  This will host a variety of children’s activities as well as specialist sessions for adults.

We will schedule a range of activities including:
 Tactile pumpkin decorating
 Create your own leaf for the central tree
 Ginger bread biscuit decorating
 Air drying clay ghosts
 Stone painting
 Conker spiders
 Pinecone decorating
 Face painting
