York Carnival was founded in 2004, by a Music Student at the University of York in order to bring together students and local residents. Starting as a day of music, York Carnival has expanded to be a free day of live music, stalls, crafts and a parade around the City Centre.
York Carnival is a University Society, and therefore a non-profit organisation – it is simply a group of students working to make this day happen!
With over 40,000 people attending every year, the atmosphere at York Carnival is electric, and in our 10th year it is set to be the biggest and best yet!
