Suffolk Walking Festival

Find out about the annual Suffolk Walking Festival

The Suffolk Walking Festival is one of the country's largest and longest running walking events. The festival takes place every May with up to 100 walks and countryside events across the county.   

Much hard work goes into planning the festival and we thank all the walk leaders, volunteers and partners across Suffolk for their work in putting together each year's programme. We also thank our sponsors and media partners including Lesley Dolphin, festival patron and afternoon presenter on BBC Radio Suffolk, The Suffolk Magazine and the East of England Coop. 

Due to COVID-19 the festival had to be cancelled in 2020 and again in 2021, but we were delighted to launch the very first VIRTUAL Suffolk Walking Festival in May 2021 with video shorts, audio clips, mindfulness minutes, quizzes, fun facts and even a podcast

The festival returned in 2022 and proved a great success with over 1,000 participants and an incredible 11 million footprints left across Suffolk! Please keep an eye on the Suffolk Walking Festival website for more details. or follow the festival on Facebook for news and updates about the event.
