We Love Yorkshire!

Here at Welcome to Yorkshire we think that Yorkshire Day should be celebrated 365 days a year.

However we'll just have to settle for 1st August and make it an extra special day!

Celebrate all things Yorkshire when the UK's largest county comes together to indulge in vast quantities of regional pride. With so much on offer to do, we hope you gain some inspiration from the options suggested below.

Official Civic Celebrations

This year’s official Yorkshire Day (1st August) celebrations will be taking place in Whitby. 

There will be numerous activities by local businesses and the public of Whitby to entertain the many thousands expected to visit Whitby on Yorkshire Day, but at the heart of the celebrations will be The Yorkshire Society’s official Civic Celebration, when Lord Mayors, Mayors, Civic Leaders and VIPs from across the county and representing every community, are invited to come-together to celebrate the County’s special day and show the world how proud we all are of Yorkshire.
