Malton Food Festival 2021, Yorkshire, UK

August 28 - August 30

Malton Food Festival

One of Yorkshire’s premier local food festivals will occur in the town of Malton from August 28 to 30, 2021. The Malton Food Festival 2021 (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, Benoit Blin, from Bake Off: The Professionals, Andrew Dickens, James Mackenzie and Florian Poirot, UK Pastry Champion will headline the 2021 Festival.

Festival Patron Tommy Banks says, “I’m proud & excited to be the patron of Malton Food Lovers Festival, celebrating the very best of Yorkshire’s produce & cooking. The 2021 festival is going to be epic with even more preparations going into making it the biggest and best ever.”

Tom Naylor-Leyland, Director of Visit Malton, says, “We’re thrilled to be officially given the green light to host the festival this year. We’ve missed the Malton Food Lovers Festival dearly as it really holds pride of place in our calendar.

“This August, we’ll be back and better than ever with our biggest festival yet – three days of delicious treats, fantastic entertainment and Yorkshire’s finest chefs and talent. What more could you ask for.”

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