What is Suffolk Day?

Suffolk Day is a county-wide party to recognise our great icons, attractions, landscapes, institutions, special events and more. The annual festivities continue on the longest day of the year, when the sun rises on our east coast and shines upon the many wonderful things we have. Suffolk Day 2022 was part of the Festival of Suffolk, the county's unique celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

What should we do on the day? It might be something simple like going for a walk in the countryside or on one of our lovely beaches. It doesn’t really matter, it’s just a moment to stop and think how lucky we are to live in Suffolk.

After the last few years we hope this will be a moment when we can all take a deep breath and remind ourselves how lucky we are to live in such an amazing place.
