Market Weighton FEASTival 2022
The East Riding of Yorkshire FEASTival heads back inland for stop number 3 in Market Weighton.
The FEASTival is an exciting fun filled weekend. Street foods, bars of distinction, alfresco dining, live music, comedy, children's entertainment, select grocery food & craft all served up with big helpings of humour, colour and character.
Following the development of town centre recovery plans with local elected members, we have identified locations that have the potential and desire to explore new events or markets. These events will act to generate interest and footfall in town centres and is an exciting opportunity for businesses to reach new audiences.

- 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

"I would very much encourage residents in these areas to visit the 'FEASTivals' when they are in their town and also continue to support the local retailers in the area as we all hope for a prosperous start to 2022. I very much hope these events bring interest and joy to our market towns during the darker winter months."
