February 12th & 13th 2022 – Market Weighton
February 19th & 20th 2022 – Withernsea (Spaces available)
February 26th & 27th 2022 – Howden
March 5th & 6th 2022 – Contingency date if bad weather impacts plans

These events will be open to all local stores, should they wish to take up a stall in the event. Traders will fall within 3 broad categories: Hot food, grocery foods and associated crafts & artisan goods.

Local businesses have 3 ways they can take advantage of these events in their towns:
1. Take a stall at the event in your town or all the towns. Stalls will be available to local traders at a concession rate, this is a great opportunity to engage with a new audience in a different setting.
2. Run a promotion at the same time as the event and we will work with you to promote this as part of the event.
3. Extend opening hours to capitalise on the increased footfall in the town centre.

There are still spaces for local businesses to hold stalls. If you would like to express an interest in taking part in these events and receive more information, please contact, Tel: 01832 281274 or visit
