July is high summer in York, bustling with crowds soaking up the summer sun and loads of events going on.

In early July the city breaks out in flowers for Bloom York, celebrating the city’s horticultural heritage.

The National Centre for Early Music, just a short stroll from us down Walmgate, has their main Festival in early to mid July. This is a wonderful event each year which features a fabulous line up of established talent in the classical music world and their prestigious International Young Artists Competition.

July also sees the Dragon Boat Challenge takes place where 36 teams race in flatwater racing canoes on the Ouse for a challenge trophy and to raise money for charity. The race takes place through the city centre between Scarborough Railway Bridge and Lendal Bridge and there is a gala on the north bank with stalls, music and food.

During this month the beautiful Museum Gardens hosts a picnic concert for York Proms – a magical evening of the most popular classical music in the open air of York’s lovely botanical gardens. There are food stalls, a bar and you can bring (or even pre-order) a picnic.

Mid-July sees all the action of the John Smith’s Cup Meeting at York Racecourse.

Towards the end the month York is host to the Great Yorkshire Fringe Festival: a comedy, variety, music and family entertainment festival held in a variety of venues throughout the city centre.

The end of July sees the Music Showcase Weekend of horseracing at York Racecourse, providing another chance to mix watching fabulous live music with soaking up the excitement of a day at the races.
