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 Friday you can come and set up your tents, campervans, and caravans from midday, and then listen to D-Jay perform an evening set. Then 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!
