Sunday 20th May – Traditional Sunday Family Day at Ripon Races

May 20

Sunday 20th May – Traditional Sunday Family Day

Our traditional Sunday raceday is the first of four family days throughout the summer and we are rolling back the years to bring you the ultimate traditional family fun! It’s a lovely day out for accomplished or new racegoers.

We have lots of free fun for the Children including:

    • National Festival Circus
    • Punch & Judy from Professor Dan Slater
    • Kub Karts
    • Bouncy Castles
    • Face Painting
    • Balloon Modelling

Here at Ripon we believe that horse racing is a sport that should be enjoyed by all the family, we offer FREE admission into all enclosures to all children under 18 as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

We also have two permanent playgrounds available at each meeting, located in our Course and Paddock enclosures to keep the children entertained. Bouncy castles and fun slides are also available in the course enclosure on Saturday meetings (weather dependant).

There are lots of lovely options for something to eat whilst here with us and also welcome picnics in our Paddock & Course Enclosures.
There are catering outlets in the course enclosure (which is where the majority of our Children’s entertainment is based) and over in the Paddock & Club enclosures we have a wide variety of options including jacket potatoes, home cooked warm dinners in our Fountains Café along with Fish n Chips and Hot roast sandwiches & toasties.

And for afters, we have the wonderful ‘Charlotte’s ice creams’ and our traditional sweet shop on site.


If you would like a sit down meal, we have our Club Dining room in the Club Enclosure where Children are more than welcome. Our caterers are more than happy to offer them a Children’s version of what is on the day’s ‘A La Carte’ menu.
