The annual COWBRIDGE FOOD & DRINK FESTIVAL is back again this year with another feast for foodies in the picturesque Vale of Glamorgan market town.
The festival is a true showcase for the finest produce, from Wales and beyond. Lots of delicious food and drink to be had and plenty of stalls to buy goodies to take home. Fantastic demos, lots of community involvement, free activities for the younger visitors, special offers on high street and lots going on around this beautiful Town!
If you’ve never been through or to Cowbridge then maybe the festival is a great place to start. The bustling market town is right at the heart of the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan surrounded by stunning countryside and dramatic coastline. Just a short drive from Cardiff, it is a real contrast to the city with a variety of fantastic independent shops along the historic high street and in the delightful surrounding lanes. You can get everything from tasty and local foodie treats, the best in fashion, gifts and design, and of course, plenty of place to eat.
The award winning Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival, sees the town at its most vibrant. It’s a weekend of culinary excellence and all round family entertainment. It’s been running since 2004 when it was set up as part of the Cowbridge Charter Trust’s 750 year celebrations, and boy has it flourished since then.
It’s grown from a one day event with 40 exhibitors and 4,000 visitors to a whole weekend attracting 150 applications for the 100+ exhibition stands and well over 10,000 visitors to the town. Along the way it’s picked up its fair share of awards, including the National Tourism Awards Wales: Best Community.
Here a look back at one of the events so you can see what they have to offer.
Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival is organised by a fantastic volunteer committee with the help of two part-time Event Organisers. It’s their dedication and enthusiasm that make this such a great event.
