Harrogate - A World of Events

No matter what time of year you visit there will always be a long and varied answer to the question, “What’s on around Harrogate?”

Rip Cathedral Beer fest

Long established or newly founded

Some of the events that take place through the year have a long history dating back hundreds of years, while other newly created events celebrate hobbies or passion with a likeminded audience.

Harrogate International Festivals recently celebrated their 50th Anniversary and organise an eclectic calendar of events throughout the year including the Harrogate Music Festival, and the now famous Crime Writers Festival.

Heart of local tradition

Local events that are part of the local heritage can give the best window into what makes a community tick, from local agricultural shows to whacky events that bring the whole town out like the Great Knaresborough Bed Race.
