From endurance sports, food festivals to classic concerts.
Any excuse really, especially if there’s food involved. Our favourite foodie events include the Pembrokeshire Fish Week at the end of June. It’s a seriously fishy festival, if you excuse the pun. Then there’s the Really Wild Food Festival in St Davids over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend and the Narberth Food Festival at the end of September, but there are plenty more.
We like our music festivals too. Anything from Blues to Bach. Here are the highlights:
The Torch Theatre in Milford Haven, The Queens Hall in Narberth, Rhos Y Gilwen near Boncath, Theatre Mwldan in Cardigan and Theatre Gwaun in Fishguard are the bigger venues and all have daily if you fancy a good night out. If you'd like something more intimate try some of the local pubs and cafes, or see our attractions search for musical attractions in Pembrokeshire.
When it comes to our big sporting event, Ironman Wales, having fun is a really serious business. The competitors have to swim 2.4 miles, cycle 112 miles then run a marathon! They do get 17 hours to complete the course (the 2014 winner only took 9 hours and 7 minutes). Spectators have a slightly easier day but all that clapping. It’s exhausting!
If you really want to discover the autumn flavour of Pembrokeshire and all that its fabulous farmers and local producers have to offer, why not take a trip to a farmers’ market?
Each September Tenby becomes home to 1900 athletes as they compete in one of the worlds toughest endurance races. Ironman: Swim 2.4 miles, cycle 112 miles and run 26.3 miles!
Think poor weather means you have to put your Year of Adventure on hold? Think again! There’s a brand new climbing wall in Haverfordwest and we’re ready to accept the challenge…are you?
