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.


In 2016, Mark Murphy of BBC Radio Suffolk was inspired to recognise everything that makes Suffolk great and, along with Archant, the County Council and many other stakeholders, created the now famous Suffolk Day.
