Crawfest is a great value, family friendly music festival, held at Partings Farm, located directly off the A170 between the villages of Ebberston and Allerston, near Scarborough in North Yorkshire. The festival was started in 2021, in memory of Alan Crawford, an EMT from Scarborough that worked for the Yorkshire Ambulance Service for 20 years, that sadly lost his life to Covid.

Crawfest 2023 will be held over three days starting on Friday the 14th July, running through until Sunday the 16th of July. On the Friday you can come and set up your tents, campervans, and caravans from midday, and then enjoy the three DJ's performing that evening, Drunk N Funk, D-Jay, and Rory Hoy. On the Saturday and Sunday there will be two full days of live music from around midday through until 11pm each day. You can stay the Sunday night and then depart on the Monday morning if you want to make it a full weekend.

There will be various food stands serving all sorts of hot food, and most importantly, a fantastic bar selling a wide range of craft beers, wines, spirits, cocktails, and soft drinks.

Over the weekend there will be stuff to keep the kids entertained, because happy kids means happy parents! We will have the much loved hay bale tent to build towers and make dens, face painting, kids inflatables, a kids craft tent with pottery and mural painting, as well as loads of other stuff.

As mentioned, we have a camping field on site for tents, camper vans and caravans immediately next door to the event field, so its only a very short walk, stagger, or crawl back to your bed at the end of the day!

The beauty of our small festival is that its all on one enclosed field, therefore providing a safe environment for kids, so parents can really relax. Even the field has amazing far stretching views across the valley.

Please support Crawfest by coming and enjoying our big hearted little festival that is run as a not-for-profit event. Everyone is very welcome!

"Hey! Just a quick note to say as a first time attender & having taken a leap of faith to camp over as a lone female - I MASSIVELY enjoyed Crawfest!!! Thank you for all of the hard work and I hope some well earned cash was earned in memory of your friend and for such a great charity. See you next year! Best regards, Jill 😍"

"This is an Absolutely fantastic music festival"
"Fantastic line up of bands, great stage and sound, excellent food stalls, and the bar was very reasonably priced last year with proper beer and lager.
Camping, caravans all welcome and very family friendly. 
One of the best music festivals on the East Coast." Rob Scott.

"Crawfest has rapidly become the best little festival.
It is super family friendly, has an amazing stage and sound system that belies its size.
Great local bands, great local cuisine as well as real ale at sensible prices.  
Bring your kids, let them of the leash with confidence, sit relax and enjoy the music. Whilst generating much needed money for two great charities."
