Discover Fire, Food and Festivities at Gwledd Conwy Feast


Sharing fresh mussels at Conwy Feast

Are you hungry for an alternative date destination? Do you have a thirst for adventure and spectacle? Then grab your partner and head to the Welsh coast this October for revelry and romance at Gwledd Conwy Feast.

Held annually, this celebration of the finest in food and drink attracts thousands of happy visitors, keen to whet their appetites and join the festivities on the banks of the River Conwy, beneath the walls of the town’s ancient castle.

This year the feast, which takes place on Saturday October 25 and Sunday October 26, will also be celebrating the centenary of Dylan Thomas’s birth and you can expect plenty of fireworks, fire juggling and dancing to add to the spectacle.

Director Fiona Trappe said: “”Gwledd Conwy Feast is an ideal setting for a date; it suits all types, although perhaps if you are looking for a quiet secluded spot, then maybe not advisable!

“Joking aside, the event, set within the medieval walled town and stunning quayside is definitely worth a visit. Now in its 11th year it has grown to become a significant event worth over £1.4m to the local economy”

As well as a mouth-watering menu the festival also features a selection of arts and crafts, including the Hiraeth exhibition, curated with the Natural Building Centre, in nearby Llanrwst, which turns the spotlight on rural crafts by presenting them in an artistic context.

Elsewhere, local community groups have teamed up with professional artists to fuse food with history and create a special banquet that represents food through the ages.

In the demonstration kitchens, local chef-turned-celebrity Bryn Williams will be joined by Cardiff’s Great British Bake Off contestant Beca Lyne-Pirkis and star of S4C’s Becws, along with chefs from some of the area’s best eateries.

If all the great food has you working up a thirst then you can drop by the Champagne and Prosecco tasting event with wine writers Andrew Campbell and Jane Clare.

Add a little Welsh flavour to your date this autumn with a trip to Gwledd Conwy Feast.
