Visit Malton’s 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 Malton – dubbed ‘Yorkshire’s Food Capital’ - the festival will return on Saturday May 27 and Sunday May 28, ahead of the Spring Bank Holiday.

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 in the town centre, visitors can also browse the 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 more than 43,000 visitors.

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.
