Hello there!

Gŵyl Fwyd Caernarfon Food Festival has established itself as one of the major events in the North Wales calendr, with over 20,000 people attending in 2018 – and it’s still growing! The event is scattered throughout town, with Caernarfon becoming a hub of activity and excitement with numerous stalls offering top quality food and drink, cookery demonstrations, freshly prepared food and lots of bands and performances for all the family – with everything provided free of charge!

From the outset, the Committee’s vision was to establish a Festival that would focus on:

  • Reflecting the unique character and culture of Caernarfon
  • Celebrating local food
  • Entertaining and educating the public
  • Working with educational institutions to enrich pupil and student experiences
  • Including local businesses
  • Highlighting issues appertaining to food waste
  • Raising awareness regarding healthy eating

We believe that we have fulfilled this vision, and more! The Festival showcases our town at its best, and it gives an enormous boost to the town’s businesses too.

In order to stage such an event, we face substantial costs – as much as £25,000. Ensuring sufficient funding is a constant challenge for the Committee of volunteers. We have been holding numerous fundraising activities throughout the year, and we have been successful in obtaining grants from various sources. But without the support of businesses / institutions like yourself, it would be impossible for us to stage the Festival.

And here’s the crux of the matter – do you want to be a part of this amazing success story? We kindly ask you for your support – every single contribution is greatly appreciated. We have an attractive funding package, as you can see from the attached brochure.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter, and I really hope that you can support us. Together, we can continue to put Caernarfon on the map for many years to come. The 2018 Festival will be held on Saturday, May 12th – we’re starting to get excited about it already!!

All the best!
