Annual Events Organized by the City of York

The mission of the York City Recreation and Parks Bureau is to meet the recreation needs of York City residents by providing direction, planning, and coordination of services to enhance their quality of life through year-round leisure programs and facilities that will develop and enhance physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. For this reason, York City Recreation and Parks is proud to bring our community a variety of fun, free, large-scale community events each year. Dollars are raised from corporate donations and booth fees, so that no City tax dollars are used.

Please see below on how you can support these events.

If you are an entertainer interested in performing at an upcoming event, please email and include a link to your website.

Sponsorship Opportunities for York City Special Events

The City of York offers a wide variety of marketing and sponsorship opportunities, which allows special events to be free and open to all — City tax dollars are not used for their implementation. These events are just some of the many reasons why York is such a great place to live, work, and play.

Please scroll down below for a listing of this year’s sponsorship opportunities. Benefits may be tailored to meet the individual needs of sponsors.

We also welcome volunteer involvement at our events.

Our corporate sponsors are acknowledged on the individual web pages of the events they have sponsored, on social media, and on signage at events.
