Tafwyl Fair

Tafwyl Fair

Details

The festival was established by Menter Caerdydd in 2006 to celebrate the use of the Welsh language in Cardiff. In 2012 Tafwyl moved from the Mochyn Du, became part of Cardiff Council’s Summer Festival Package and was held at Cardiff Castle for the first time. Tafwyl’s footfall has grown incredibly over the last few years from 1,500 in the Mochyn Du to over 36,500 at last year’s event.

Tafwyl is a family friendly festival, and is a lively mix of live music, literature, drama, comedy, art, sports, food & drink. The event is 9 days in total: a fringe event held all around the city in museums, libraries, cafés, bars & art centres for 7 days, ending with the main event over a weekend.

Entry to Tafwyl is free & open to all – being a Welsh speaker or not. It’s a great event for families, Welsh learners & people experiencing Welsh language & culture for the very first time.

Tafwyl is a showcase of the Welsh language and what we do best, so don’t miss out, there will be a big croeso to everyone to come and join us and experience the uniqueness of Tafwyl.
