Go Racing in Yorkshire Summer Festival Pontefract

Sunday racedays have always been extra special for Pontefract Racegoers.

Our renowned Sunday fixtures not only feature the best racing of the year at Pontefract with over £100,000 worth of Prize Money available at each meeting, but they are also the 3 fixtures each season dedicated to families.

As well as special events on each Sunday raceday, there will also be a funfair, facepainting, circus, free sweets, activity packs and racecards for kids, pony rides, trips to the starts of races and a ‘Hunt The Golden Horseshoe’ competition on every Family Day!

Our second Family Sunday is the Go Racing In Yorkshire Summer Festival Family Day.

The 11th Go Racing in Yorkshire Summer Festival kicks off at Ripon on Saturday 21st July and concludes with our second Family Day of the season on Sunday 29th July. With racing throughout the White Rose county all week, it’s a Festival to remember for racing enthusiasts.
Alongside all the Family Fun Activities at Pontefract, we’ll be staging a fake festival on the day! With 4 fantastic tribute acts performing throughout the afternoon, there’ll be a really fun, family atmosphere!
