More Information about Trading at the Festival of Vintage 

About the Festival of Vintage

The Festival has been running since 2011 and we are very proud to say that many of our trade exhibitors have been with us from the very beginning. The event has evolved over the years and grown into two large grandstand buildings over 3 floors at York Racecourse. Which means all trading is under cover in light, bright buildings.  The Festival of Vintage has a great reputation for selecting and showcasing the UK's best vintage dealers! With strict datelines imposed the Festival of Vintage ensures our visitors see amazing original vintage items in our Vintage Arcade offering some of the very best vintage shopping in the UK. We do welcome a limited number of those selling Top Quality Reproduction and this is in a special dedicated area of the Festival within the Nostalgia Hall.

Layout of Exhibitors

To help our visitors shop wisely (they really love to shop) and find what they are looking for, we separate original vintage (1920's-1960's only) in a different area from Vintage Inspired/Repro Brands and we also have a small Vintage Craft Section-so our visitors know exactly what they are buying. 


We target the right customers, who are enthusiasts and into the vintage scene, they know what they are looking for and know that the Festival of Vintage offers a quality shopping experience. Footfall over the weekend is up to 5,000 people. With many visiting year on year and estimate spend per head is high!

What our exhibitors are saying

“Enid Brown had a fabulous time! The Friday set up was leisurely and the loading and reload as painless as it gets.

There was a smiling face at the gate each morning to let us in and wish us a good day and help with parking each time.

A fantastic vibrant weekend which wasn't just about selling though we did the best ever! but also the fashion, entertainment and music made a really wonderful atmosphere.

Same space for us please! So a great big thanks from us to you”
