YorkFest Welcome Week has been a long-standing tradition at York University. Each year the York Federation of Students aims to bring you the largest event ever held on a Canadian University campus. The Festival Village gives the opportunity for all York students to interact with a variety of student clubs, services and groups on and off campus. The Festival Village has grown over the years to include over 300 different sponsors and student organizations along our campus walk. A variety of giveaways from both our partners and student organizations are the main feature of the Festival Village

An important aspect of the Village is the opportunity for students to attain information regarding York University as well getting involved in other campus opportunities. This year will feature many more prospects for partners to get involved with York’s 48,000+ students during our Welcome Week.

We strive to ensure we bring our student organization the best opportunity to participate in the YorkFest Festival Village.

We will bring you new sponsors, new clubs and services, more orientation events, and a diverse range of musical acts. Don’t miss out on your chance to be a part of the greatest orientation event that the YFS has to offer. 

All York affiliated groups, services, clubs and organizations that are approved by the York Federation of Students and the Office of Student Community & Leadership Development have the opportunity to receive a booth during the day.

All other outside groups wishing to activate during this high-traffic event can obtain access to a Village booth through YorkFest partnership opportunities.
