Yorktown Market Days and Events

Whether you’re a hiker, biker, kayaker, power boater or beach lover – Yorktown is your outdoor recreation destination.  Yorktown’s mile-long pedestrian Riverwalk is the perfect place for power walking, running or a casual stroll. Rent a bicycle from Patriot Tours & Provisions and enjoy a leisurely ride around the Yorktown Battlefield and Historic Main Street. Kayaks and paddleboards are also available for rent.

The Market is one of the most unique in the Tidewater Area, offering spectacular views of the York River, a variety of vendors and artists, food trucks, chef cooking demonstrations and entertainment on select weeks. Markets are held on Saturdays through the end of October, rain or shine, with the exception October 2nd.

This year’s Market season brings several special extended markets including everything from a Paws at the River Pet Day, to a Maritime Market, and also a Fall Festival—all geared toward families and kids. Visit www.yorktownmarketdays.com for the complete schedule.
