Returning for its third year after much success is the Newmarket Food & Drink Festival, part of the Newmarket Open Weekend. Based in the centre of the historic market town, it gives Newmarket Open Weekenders that buzzing festival feel.

With over 50 bespoke food stalls, you’ll be royally spolit for choice. You’ll get the chance to feast on and purchase some of the best produce of East Anglia.

The festival is traditionally decorated in a vintage style – with a relaxed ‘olde English’ theme to make your experience in this World Heritage Site all the more authentic. Expect all the finest British delicacies, as well as some international favourites. Cloudlike cupcakes with flawless frosting, and brownies drizzled with unexpected toppings will be there to seduce your sweet tooth.  

On top of this, cooking demos will be featuring at the festival, seeing some top chefs sharing some insider knowledge and top tips. As you tickle your taste buds and tuck in to a traditional treat, take a break and check out the fantastic live music on offer, courtesy of Newmarket’s busking competition finalists!

The Food and Drink Festival takes place in the heart of the action of the New Market Open Weekend – which, over the past four years, has raised a fantastic £225,000 for local charities. Here you have the chance to go behind the scenes at British horseracing’s HQ - the birthplace of thoroughbred horseracing - around the grounds of the wonderful Heritage Centre.
