Malton Food Festival 2022, Yorkshire, UK

June 3 - June 5

Malton Food Festival

One of Yorkshire’s premier local food festivals will occur in the town of Malton from 3 to 5 June, 2022. The Malton Food Festival 2022 (or Malton Food Lovers Festival to give its full title) will attract tens of thousands of foodies from across the county and elsewhere in the UK. Due to its popularity it is now held over three days.

Tom Rhodes, Masterchef Champion 2021, Andrew Dickens and James Mackenzie will headline the 2022 Festival. The Guardian’s food journalist, Felicity Cloake, will take to the Main Stage at 2pm on Saturday 4 June for a Q&A and book signing.

Archaeologist and University of York Professor, Dr Penny Bickle, will transport visitors back in time with her rehistoric cheese demo.

Malton is described as Yorkshire’s Foodie Glastonbury – although I doubt there are many champagne and oyster bars in the Somerset mud.
