About The Festival
Tockwith Beer Festival is Eight!
From a small event organized by the North Yorkshire village’s primary school’s Parents, Friends and Teachers Association in 2009, Tockwith Beer Festival has rapidly grown to become one of the area’s most popular and eagerly awaited attractions.
Now catering for up to 2000 visitors, Tockwith Festival, as it is now known, regularly provides around 40 real ales and a couple of dozen bands – along with a giant marquee bar, Tea Tent, children’s and teenagers workshops, open-mic sessions and other entertainment – and it continues to grow.
Bigger, Better, Beer!
Music from a wide range of genres abound across two stages and an ever-more dazzling array of tipples including several interesting ciders, Pimms, wines and another four dozen carefully-selected quality ales from across Yorkshire and further afield. The Festival takes pride in introducing new ales from smaller, local brewers – as long as it’s good! Will this year’s beers manage to have even more imaginative names than before?
Something for everyone
However, the Tockwith Festival isn’t just about ale. It’s a terrific, fun, friendly and musical day out for all the family, with a traditional tea room serving softer beverages and tasty snacks giving it a real community atmosphere that lasts all afternoon and very late into the evening. Profits are given to our very own registered charity which supports the school and local good causes. So anyone overdoing it can rest (and sleep it off soundly) in the knowledge that they were doing so in a very good cause.
