The Ebor Festival is a four-day race meeting held at York Racecourse in York, England, each August. The 2017 Ebor Festival is due to take place from 23 to 26 August[1].

The Ebor festival was established in 1843 with the first running of the Ebor Handicap.

Each of the four days has feature races:

The 2008 Ebor Festival was abandoned after wet weather left the course waterlogged and unfit for racing. It was the first time in the event's history that the entire card had to be scrapped due to bad weather.

As one of the last major race meetings of the flat season, it attracts racegoers from all over the UK and overseas.
