Feast of Food Festivals

Food FestivalWe've had Bridgend's Feastival and the acclaimed Abergavenny Food Festival but the foodie fiestas of Southern Wales continue this month.

First up this Saturday is the Newport Food Festival.  There'll be a great atmosphere with plenty of on-street mayhem, demonstrations and masters classes and of course loads of stalls rammed with the very best local food and drink.

The focus then shifts to the rural market town of Cowbridge on the weekend of the 26-27 October for their food festival.

Again, there'll be dozens of stalls selling the best food and drink as well as chefs from top local restaurants and hotels demonstrating their skills.

In addition local business will be getting involved.  At the town's historic Bear Hotel there'll be live entertainment in their pop up 'Garden Village' as well as wine tasting and an intriguing Cupcake masterclass.  Visit their website for more information.

This is Wales' biggest and best food festival

The historic market town, which has a great reputation amongst foodies will be full of stands, stalls and exhibitors giving visitors, quite literally a taste, of Wales.  The various venues are situated close together and include the Market Hall, the Cheese and Wine Show, and Grillstock.

Complementing the stalls are a variety of masterclasses, tastings and talks whilst there is plenty to keep the kids happy with workshops, story telling and live music.

Don't worry if you can't make it to Abergavenny, there are two more great food festivals coming up over the next few weeks. 

Look our for the Bridgend Food Feastival (27-28 September), Cowbridge Food Festival (26-27 October) and the Newport Food Festival (5 October)

I hope you're feeling hungry!!!
