Food festival lovers, keep this pencilled in your calendar Amgueddfa Cymru Food Festival returns. Open from the 10th until the 11th of September in the Welsh National Museum Of History, Saint Fagans, for a jam-packed weekend filled with all your local foody favourites, pop-up stalls, Welsh music and family fun.
After hosting an online event last year due to lockdown measures, the organisers are excited to be back hosting an in-person festival once again. The museum will be brought to life, with a range of over 80 food, drink and arts and crafts stalls popping up in between the old historic Welsh buildings.
Mared Maggs, Head of Events, Amgueddfa Cymru National Museum Wales commented “We’re thrilled to be able to invite visitors back to St Fagan's to enjoy the Food Festival in person this year. We’re excited to once again be celebrating a wide range of Welsh producers and a diverse range of talent from across Wales at the event.”
With cooking demos taking place in the old cobblestone houses, circus skills taught to children on the grass and an arrangement of activities taking place across the museum, the whole family can enjoy a great day out. BBC horizon and Tafwyl will be partnering to bring some of the best live Welsh bands who will be blessing the museums' acoustics with the sounds of traditional Folk, Pop and Rock.
Bringing a diverse range of street food bites, guests can indulge in a stone-baked pizza from Ffwrnes, an ultimate vegan burger from Captain Joys, tasty desserts from pudding wagon, and sip on a cold drink from William brothers cider, only to name a few.
Creating a sustainable event that preserves the museum's beauty and also looks out for the local community is at the core of this years event. Amgueddfa Cymru have teamed up with Food Cardiff who will be running a good food activity area for those wanting to learn more about Cardiff's gold sustainable food places bid. Surplus food from the event stallholders will be collected by Fareshare Cymru and redistributed to those who need it.
