The Spring Malton Food Lovers Festival is just around the corner, taking place across three days of the Queen’s Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend on the 3rd, 4th and 5th June 2022, bringing a delicious schedule of cookery demonstrations, street food, entertainment and more to guarantee a fun-filled foodie weekend for festivalgoers in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
The Malton Food Lovers Festival, fondly known as “Yorkshire’s Foodie Glastonbury,” is free to enter, and the fun will be kicking off at 9am on Friday/Saturday and 10am on the Sunday.
With over 100 food stalls confirmed, a full itinerary of delicious demos and ‘Sofa Chats’ with celebrated local chefs on the Main Stage, there will be plenty to sink your teeth into – quite literally! All the demos on the Main Stage are free of charge.
New to this year’s Festival is Archaeologist and University of York Professor, Dr Penny Bickle, who will be transporting visitors back in time with her demonstration on ‘prehistoric cheese.’ Plus, foodie fans have the chance to meet The Guardian’s acclaimed food journalist and author, Felicity Cloake, who will be taking to the Main Stage at 2pm on Saturday 4th June for a book signing and Q&A.
Live music will add ambiance to the Food Lovers Festival with musicians playing on street corners to add entertainment to the festival atmosphere.
There will also be plenty on offer for younger family members too, with Be Amazing Arts hosting a series of children’s activities and workshops over the whole weekend and Magical Quests North will be adding a jungle theme to Kemp’s Courtyard for younger visitors.
What’s more, the new Malton Sculpture Trail is launching on Friday 3rd June to tie in with the first day of the Festival, where visitors can behold some of the best sculptures, 3D installations and projection displays designed by local Yorkshire artists. The trail will be in place for the entirety of the 3 day event.
The Food Lovers Festival is free to attend with designated festival Park & Ride car parks operating (at a small charge). The Park and Ride service will be available at each entrance to Malton from the A64, with a regular shuttle bus service direct to the event entrance.
Malton is also accessible via public transport with frequent train services to the town from York and Scarborough and Malton is on the award winning Coastliner bus route.
