It’s nearly time to get your sampling sticks at the ready as Llanelli Food and Drink Festival returns for its fifth year this Saturday 21st October!

It's going to be one mega day out as street food vendors take over Vaughan Street, while artisan producers pack into Stepney Street in one of the town’s biggest events of the year.

We've got a smorgasbord of free activities on offer for both children and adults alike, with live music throughout the day. Festivalgoers can make sure they enjoy the whole day with free parking in all Carmarthenshire County Council-owned town centre car parks.

Once you’ve had your fill of the wide range of lush local products on offer, you can kick back and relax with some tunes in Stepney Square. The line-up is packed with talent from the Tenovus Choir, Jemma Krysa, Nathan Jones, the Renaissance duo, the Moonshine duo, and Kate. 

Coleg Sir Gar will be pitched up on Bridge Street with live cookery demonstrations from their Cook24 project, which will see students crafting meals using local produce from 9am to 5pm. Alongside them will be the Annibendod craft bus, offering hands-on pottery workshops from 10am to 4pm. 

A Taste of Times Past will be showing you how to pickle and how to make beastly biscuits from 10am to 4pm in St Elli Shopping Centre, where there will also be a range of craft stalls. For even more fun, head to Llanelli Indoor Market, where Raspberry Creative will be hosting a spooky arts and crafts station. 

Music Factory Llanelli will be offering drop-in taster music sessions in Llanelli Library from 1pm to 4pm, with no previous experience necessary and insturments provided. The library’s regular Lego club will also be available all day. 

Further afield, the Selwyn Samuel Centre will be holding its Autumn Fayre from 11am to 4pm.
