15 days of Music and Arts in the Yorkshire Dales
Now in its 37th year, Grassington Festival provides a lively and enriching cultural experience to its residents and visitors with its combination of performances, visual arts and live music.
Every year, we bring internationally renowned acts and high quality performances to Grassington for 15 days of music and arts. During this time, the village comes alive in a myriad of colours and creativity as artists, bands, art enthusiasts and local people collaborate to entertain and inspire with unusual and unique live performances, from music, dance and street Theatre to workshops, talks, walks and creative challenges.
Grassington Festival is a registered charity whose mission is to educate by providing enjoyable experiences and encouraging active involvement for all. As part of the Festival, we pride ourselves on our work within the community by providing free workshops and events and working with local primary schools and local care homes.
The theme for Grassington Festival 2017 is ‘Explore!’ which will be reflected throughout our diverse programme of events.
