Michelin-starred line up for the 2019 Goodwood May Festival

Horse Racing | Press Article 16/04/24

Following last year’s success, Goodwood Racecourse will again host its annual celebration of racing and food; May Festival – featuring the Goodwood Food Show (formally The Festival of Food and Racing) this year from Thursday 23 May – Saturday 25 May.

2018 saw a plethora of chefs, all sharing Goodwood’s sustainable ethos, descend on the Goodwood Racecourse in May. This year, several culinary displays will be hosted by chefs including Kenny Tutt, 2018 winner of BBC Masterchef, James Goulding from The Pig Hotel Group and West Sussex based Matt Gillan, as they inspire exquisite mouth-watering dishes.

The Food Market will join the Demo Kitchen on the East Parade Lawn in the Gordon-Lennox Enclosure, or, as it will be known for the event, The Food Lawn. Visitors will find the Food Market, a cluster of beautifully arranged tipis, overflowing with locally sourced produce, providing guests the chance to sample and shop from a range of award-winning products.

New this year will also be a street food offering: the concourse outside the Sussex Stand will host a wide selection of street food stalls that can all be sampled by trying out various taster options (all available for just five pounds). So hungry onlookers will not have to commit to just one choice, they can get a taste of all the mouth-watering cuisine on offer.

All of these exciting activities will, of course, be backed by three exhilarating afternoons of horseracing.

Tickets can be purchased from only £20 in advance and children under 18 go free in all enclosures. Please call 01243 216610 or visit for tickets, hospitality and further information.
