Back by popular demand, Visit Malton has announced its much-loved Food Lovers Festival will be returning for two weekends this year, offering the whole family a fun and interesting day out.
Taking over the streets of Yorkshire’s Food Capital, the Malton Food Lovers Festival will make its grand return on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May 2023, ahead of the Spring Bank Holiday. The festival is then scheduled to return once again over the August bank holiday weekend, on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th August 2023.
Malton Food Lovers Festival is the ultimate celebration of Yorkshire’s finest produce and cooking, boasting a number of artisan stalls, delicious street food, live talks from local celebrated chefs, tastings and delicious demonstrations, as well as a festival bar, live music, children’s fairground rides and family entertainment. And, because the festival is uniquely placed in the town centre, visitors can also browse the fantastic range of independent retailers and artisan makers who call Malton home all year round.
As one of the largest free-to-enter food festivals in the country, each event attracts over 43,000 visitors, from Yorkshire and beyond.
Tom Naylor-Leyland, Director of Visit Malton, said: “We can’t wait to bring the Food Lovers Festival back this year. The Yorkshire food scene has so much to offer, and last year our Food Lovers Festival served up a fantastic range of Yorkshire’s finest artisan food and drink producers as well as street food vendors.
“We know that a lot of our visitors have attended our previous festivals over the past 14 years, so we’re excited to show them what’s new in Malton! It’s sure to be a corker!”
Stallholders can now register their interest in attending the Malton Food Lovers Festival on the Visit Malton website, at www.visitmalton.com/stall-applications.
