Gwledd Conwy Feast to celebrate 10th anniversary
Conwy’s 13th century castle, historic quayside and river are the unrivalled stage and backdrop to two days and three nights of food, music and art at this year’s Gwledd Conwy Feast.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the festival, which begins on Friday October 25th and ends the evening of October 27. Gwledd Conwy Feast is one of Wales’ biggest festivals, attracting up to 25,000 people to the picturesque medieval town over the weekend.
The Feast coincides with the beginning of the Conwy mussel season. Renowned for their distinctive flavour, the mussels are gathered just as they were 400 years ago: hand raked from small wooden boats in Conwy estuary.
This year the festival has partnered with Incredible Edible, National Botanic Gardens of Wales and Farmers Union Wales to encourage people to grow their own food in any space whether it’s a small planter or a previously redundant area or just ignored land.
