September is all about the Indian summer and pleasing the palate in South Wales. A few glorious events outlined below. Tidy like!
17th Aug/9th Sept Summer Feastival, Sophia Gardens, Cardiff city centre
Starting on Friday, August 17 and running until Sunday, September 9 , the Feastival will be held every Friday evening, all day Saturday and until 8pm on Sunday for four weeks in Sophia Gardens, next door to Cardiff Castle.
Each weekend will feature a changing line-up of different street food traders from across Wales and the South West.
Whilst the Friday and Saturday events will appeal to weekend merrymakers and keen foodies; the Sunday events will deliver a more family-friendly vibe, with a variety of entertainment on offer, including face-painting and stilt walkers.
Travel to the festival by train from Barry Docks to Cardiff Central. Trains run every 15 min every day.
8th/9th Sept St. Fagans Food Festival, Cardiff
Free food festival in the grounds of the St. Fagans National Museum of History (which itself is a must) when visiting South Wales. The Food Festival brings together the finest local producers and mixes them up with a feast of family fun and foodie treats.
Only 20 minutes drive from Barry Lofts.
15th/16th Sept Abergavenny Food Festival
The ‘Cannes of Food Festivals’ for good reason, Abergavenny plays host to the best of Welsh, British and international producers for two days every September, alongside a wide variety of top chefs, entertainment, demonstrations and more, all in a beautiful market town nestled amonst the Brecon Beacons.
