Foodies Flock to Largest Food Festival in North Wales

Gwledd Conwy Feast was held last weekend near our North Wales caravan parks. The sound of live music could be heard throughout the event and spectacular fireworks filled the skies.The historic town of Conwy was flooded by over 10,000 people who attended the biggest food festival in North Wales. Visitors filled the 14th Century streets to sample the gourmet food on offer. Friday was the opening night for the Gwledd Conwy Feast, and a remarkable fireworks show was displayed from Conwy castle. As the smell of food drifted through the air, it didn’t take long for the queues to build up. Over 100 stalls, full of the best produce was on display. From local Conwy mussels to the Flavours of Africa, there was always something on offer to tempt any foodie. Autumn comfort food was also on offer, ranging from homemade chutneys, cheeses and preserves. There were demonstrations from top local chef, Richard Williams and Great British Bake Off semi-finalist, Beca Lyne-Pirkis. Around the site, there was also sheep shearing and a traditional skills tent, which displayed lost and recently revived arts. If you unfortunately missed this event, why not head to Llandudno Christmas Fayre? It will be held from the 17th- 20th November. It will be the perfect way to get you into the festive spirit.This time of year is perfect to eat your favourite treats and discover the local produce which is on offer. The Gwledd Conwy Feast is held every October, so why not attend next year?
