The Go Racing in Yorkshire Summer Festival brings together 8 of the Yorkshire racecourses for a week long racing spectacular commencing on Saturday 21st July at Ripon Racecourse and finishing 8 days later at Pontefract Racecourse on Sunday 29th July. We are very excited to announce our Festival sponsor, Skybet, have agreed continuing sponsorship of the festival until 2021! Without them we could not provide the fabulous festival we do currently or continue to grow it.
A magnificent week of horseracing and entertainment awaits Yorkshire racegoers with everything from Family Days at Redcar and Pontefract, Carnival night at Beverley, Sir Tom Jones and Boyzone at York and great family entertainment and live music at all the racecourses. Children go free with an accompanying adult, making Yorkshire racing a great family day out!
In 2018, Racing Welfare is our supported charity for the festival. They will be at every racecourse with their stand which includes an equicisor. Before racing at every course a jockey will come out and give a demonstration before inviting all racegoers to have a go! Festival Freddie, our festival mascot will be around the courses, giving out sweets and goodies with our photographer. All photographs each day can be found on the Go Racing In Yorkshire facebook page and can be downloaded for free.
The Go Racing in Yorkshire 2018 Summer Festival continues to grow and will be an exciting week of racing right across the county.
