Gŵyl Fwyd Caernarfon Food Festival opens applications for stallholders at the festival which will be held in Caernarfon town centre on May 13th, 2017.
Around 10,000 people visited the town during the festival in 2016 for the first food festival in Caernarfon with several traders selling all their products.
Caernarfon will be a paradise for food-lovers during the festival, with live cooking demonstrations, food cooked fresh, fun activities for the whole family as well as many stalls providing food and drink to try and buy.
Sharon Jones from Moch Llŷn said about the 2016 festival;
“Thanks very much for being a part of the successful festival, everything was organised very well. It was lovely to see so many people supporting on the day. I would be delighted to be part of the second festival next year.”
One of the main objectives of the festival is to reflect the town’s character and culture and celebrate local food by inviting local producers, caterers and restaurants to showcase their tasty food and drink. An addition to the festival this year is craft corner where local craft makers can showcase and sell their work.
