East Yorkshire Feastivals 2022
A series of newly formed ‘East Riding FEASTivals’ are coming to East Yorkshire towns from January 2022.
The East Riding FEASTival will be a celebration of our high streets, through an event that will feature street foods, bars of distinction, alfresco dining, live music, and children’s entertainment served up with fun, colour and character.
The events are planned to take place from late January to early March, running at weekends from mid-morning to the evening. Please see the dates below together with further information of who to contact if you wish to take part:
January 29 & 30 2022 – Hessle FEASTival
February 5 & 6 2022 – Hornsea FEASTival
February 12 & 13 2022 – Market Weighton FEASTival
February 19 & 20 2022 – Withernsea FEASTival
February 26 & 27 2022 – Howden FEASTival
These events will be open to all local stores, should they wish to take up a stall in the event. Traders will fall within 3 broad categories: hot food, grocery foods and associated crafts & artisan goods.
Local Businesses have 3 ways they can take advantage of these events in their towns:
- Take a stall at the event in your town or all the towns. Stalls will be available to local traders at a concession rate, this is a great opportunity to engage with a new audience in a different setting.
- Run a promotion at the same time as the event and the council will work with you to promote this as part of the event
- Extend opening hours to capitalise on the increased footfall in the town centre
If you would like to express an interest in taking part in these events, and receive more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel: 01832 281274 or visit https://www.marketsquaregroup.co.uk/core/events
