  1. Hi,
    We saw you will be at Narberth Food Festival and wondered whether you would be interested in attending this year on 6th August? Our event attracts about 8-10000 visitors annually and this year there will be the additional attraction of a ‘Medieval Day’ taking place up the road in the Castle on the day. You can find the application form in both English and Welsh on our website where you can also see a video of last year’s event.
    Festivals Events Cardigan Bay are the new organisers of the Cardigan River and Food Festival, taking place later this year on 6th August. We only came into existence on April 1st, which is why it has taken longer than usual to get the application forms out to stall holders and interested businesses. Although we are a new organisation it is still mostly the same people running this event, so you can expect similar things to previous years – the same riverside location, the same mix of river events, live music and entertainment for kids and adults throughout the day, the same emphasis on good food through our chef’s demonstrations and the great stallholders who support us year on year. We can only hope that we also have the same sunshine and good weather that we enjoyed last year!
    However, we are always looking to improve the event and we have listened to some of the feedback from visitors, participants, sponsors and stallholders to give us ideas for what else we could do, or what we could do better. So this year there will be no funfair amusements as in previous years – instead we will have seating and tables for visitors to eat and drink their purchases in a new food court area close to the river. The stalls in the food market will remain largely where they have been in the upper car park, with marquees containing the cooking demonstrations, local producers’ market, craft fair and entertainments in the lower car park. We will also have more toilets.
    We are keen to have you attend the festival to promote your food to our visitors. The event has taken place annually for 12 years and has grown to attract 8-10K visitors and features nearly 100 stalls and exhibitors, including many local producers and True Taste award winners. There will be two cooking demonstration areas, one of which will this year be promoting the ‘low carbon cook off’ in collaboration with Wales Eco Centre.
    Please note that if you are serving food or drink to be consumed at the festival you will need to book a stall in the food court area, and if you are selling food and drink to be consumed off site then you will need to book a stall in the food market area. If you are serving alcohol you will also need to complete and return our alcohol traders agreement.
    We look forward to receiving your booking, and seeing you on 6th August!
