You will know that Wednesday 1 August sees the official Yorkshire Day celebrations coming to Ripon.

Mayors and other dignitaries will parade through the market place to the cathedral where a celebratory service will take place followed by a civic lunch.  Welcome to Yorkshire, Visit Harrogate and all our Ripon tourist attractions are committed to making this a huge event and will be publicising it for a month in advance.

There will be a huge Wilfra Tart festival, children’s activities, a family party in the evening, music and dance  all backed up by massive national and regional media coverage.

Any Ripon business has the opportunity to set up a stall or display on the market place FREE OF CHARGE but hurry, because space is limited. If you would like to take advantage email for an application form.
