It’s the largest county in the UK, it has some of the most flocked-to tourist attractions and it’s God’s Own Country - it’s Yorkshire.

From Leeds’ eye-catching Kirkstall Abbey to the famous York Minster, our county has hundreds of unique places.

We’re proud to be Yorkshire and to have the cities, towns, villages and landmarks that make the region so special.

And now the countdown is on for Yorkshire Day - an annual event on Saturday August 1 to which celebrates the county’s impressive heritage.

There will be dozens of events taking place across the region to mark Yorkshire Day.

A Yorkshire Day Festival will be held at the Wentbridge House Hotel in Pontefract on July 29 featuring a brass band, Punch and Judy, vintage cars, a hog roast and an appearance from ITV Calendar’s Jon Mitchell.

There will also be live demonstrations from Debbie Hall-Evans, winner of Channel 4’s The Taste, and Yorkshire TV chef Stephanie Moon at the festival.

Morris dancers will line the stage in another event at Sewerby Hall in Bridlington on August 1.

We’re asking you to show us what you’re doing to mark the occasion.

Send us your pictures from your own Yorkshire Day celebrations and we’ll publish a selection of the best on August 1.
