Yorkshire Day

Yorkshire Day

Yorkshire Day 2022 is proudly being hosted in Keighley!​

The Yorkshire Day Civic Celebration has taken place every year since 1985 on 1 August. Each year The Yorkshire Society appoints a town or city to organise a special civic celebration. In 2022 the event will be in Keighley, West Yorkshire. Keighley Town Council is deeply honoured to be chosen by the Yorkshire Society to host this significant celebration in our beautiful Town.

“We are honoured that Keighley has been selected to host the 2022 Yorkshire Day civic celebration event. Here in Keighley we celebrate all that is Yorkshire annually and to host the day on behalf of the county is amazing! Keighley is a truly diverse community with lots to offer and we look forward to showcasing the town and it’s wonderful community at its absolute best.”
