Get ready for Fairtrade Fortnight 2012

Take a step for Fairtrade

The 2012 Fairtrade Campaign

The York Festival of Fairtrade 2012 will take place from 27th February to 11th March.

During the Festival there will be over a hundred events including sales, tastings and events at churches, schools, community groups and at the city’s universities.

The highlight of the Festival will be the three day York Fair Trade Market, held in partnership with City of York Council, which will take place on Friday 9th, Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th March.  Parliament Street will be filled with a wide variety of colourful stalls selling Fairtrade food & drink, crafts, clothes, bags, jewellery and fashion accessories.

At the market on Saturday 10th March there will be a day of entertainment including the infectious sound of samba and music and dancing from around the world.

The Fairtrade Foundation are running a ‘Take a Step for Fairtrade’ campaign for 2012. Read more about this – and record your steps – on their website.
