Events in Wales

A huge variety of events take place throughout the year in Wales. Whether you seek adrenalin fuelled adventures, whacky races, cultural gatherings, music festivals, veg from over the hedge, furry fiasco dog shows or family fun, there is something for everyone.

Head for North Wales to eat your fill of delicious Anglesey oysters, Conwy mussels, golden honey and the very best local produce at Gwledd Conwy Feast. Visit Mid Wales for bog snorkelling championships, the man versus horse marathon or the celebrated Hay Literary Festival. The Mackerel Fest and Cardigan Bay Seafood Festival in Aberaeron West Wales are not to be missed. In the south the gruelling Iron Man event takes place in Pembrokeshire and the Gower Festival attracts national and international artists to deliver a programme of music for all tastes.
