Details

As always the festival will be bringing a dazzling array of some of the biggest names in Welsh arts, culture & sport to Cardiff along with an excellent street food area.

Tafwyl is Cardiff’s annual Welsh language arts & culture festival. The festival was established in 2006 to celebrate the use of the Welsh language in Cardiff. Tafwyl’s footfall has grown incredibly over the last few years to over 40,000 in 2018.

Tafwyl is a family friendly festival, and is a lively mix of music, literature, drama, comedy, art, sports, food & drink. The event is nine days in total: a fringe event held all around the city for 7 days, ending with the main event at Cardiff Castle.

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