Festival of Vintage

  • York Race Course Knavesmire Road York, England YO23 1EX United Kingdom (map)

The fantastic Festival of Vintage once again returns to York Racecourse, taking over three buildings and four floors, as well as an extensive outdoor area for classic vehicles and displays.

Enjoy the Vintage Dance Hall with a range of free dance lessons as well as plenty of chances for some social dancing – and you can even enter the Vintage Dance Competition!

After bopping ‘til you drop, explore the Nostalgia Hall with the main ‘Rockin Stage’, loads of live music and dance floor, bar and refreshments. There’s also the Chap Lounge and Vinyl Corner, Vintage Inspired area and the incredibly popular Vintage Hair Parlour.

The Vintage Arcade is packed to the rafters with arguably the best selection of early vintage fashion in the UK.

Many stallholders save their very best stock for this event and organiser Keeley Harris told us that she’s always ‘constantly amazed’ at the quality that the stallholders bring with them to the fair. A
great place to grab some proper authentic gear!

The Best Dressed competition is another highlight with enthusiasts spending a lot of time on that perfect outfit – if you fancy having a go, then you need to enter in advance via the website.

As well as clothing there’s a great selection of specialists selling Art Deco, Atomic and Utility homeware and accessories from the 1930s to the 1960s. All in all, a great weekend for all things vintage!
