Fishguard Autumn Festival

Back for its 4th year, the festival runs from 28th October through to 2nd November.

The Festival which was started by Fishguard and District Round Table in 2011 is a celebration of local food and drink, culture and entertainment.

The Festival will see many events of previous years return as well as the inclusion of a whole host of fantastic new things to see and do.

The Progressive Supper, on the 29th October, makes its return with the community opening its doors to friends and neighbours to sample a starter at one house, a main at another and puddings at another within a village. A great way to meet the neighbours.

For families there's the family fun evening including children's fancy dress all topped off with fireworks over the harbour on Halloween, 31st October.  The vintage tractor run and the hugely popular Cawl Crawl challenge make a return on the 1st November.

We’re also delighted to announce some new editions to this year’s Festival which include Fishguard's artisan market, a micro brewery event, griddle breads and puddings work shop and a children’s Halloween crafts party.

This year’s Festival will also welcome a selection of working vintage steam engines. You’ll be able to take a ride around Fishguard on the Foden Steam Bus as well as take a look at other engines including Fowler Showman’s Engine ‘Prince of Wales’.

The 2014 Festival is shaping up to be the biggest to date and a fantastic event for both the community and visitors to the twin towns of Fishguard and Goodwick so be sure to come along and be a part of one of the best Autumn Festivals around.

 Such a beautiful idyllic place to holiday and I've been visiting every year since I was a child. Would definitely recommend it as top spot to take a break.
