On its site alongside the great River Teifi the day is a showcase for the very best of food and drink from the local area and wider Wales, with over 60 stalls selling a huge variety of produce. Our closest producer will travel less than a quarter of a mile, just across the river – how’s that for cutting down on Food Miles!
A visit to the Festival can be a real family event and it’s easy to spend hours with us as you take in all the day has to offer. We have a large covered seating area for visitors to relax and enjoy their purchases, and listen to great music. From there you can also watch the River events, which include the RNLI giving a demonstration of their rescue techniques, decorated boats visiting from the Teifi Boating Club, and you can cheer on the local teams competing in the Festival Long Boat race.
We have a marquee dedicated to our Demonstration Kitchen, and free demos will happen throughout the day. By popular demand we will have S4C regular Gareth Richards back with us, and Lisa Fearn, from The Pumpkin Patch Cookery School, is giving a demo and a free children’s workshop. Our most local chef is Mandy Walters, from Cardigan Bay Fish, who will demonstrate how to dress a crab, and make an amazing sea food dish.
Children’s activities are provided by Cardigan’s own Small World Theatre and Welsh language group CERED.
To make sure that getting to the Festival is easy there is a free Park and Ride service operating all day from just outside town. Details of this, and up to date information on the timetable of events and activities are on our website, and also on Facebook. Entry charges are just £2.50 for adults, £1 for children and £6 for a family (2+2)
