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!

Join us from 9am to 5pm as we celebrate the event’s fifth birthday with one HUUUGE day out right here in Llanelli town centre 🥳 

Read on for all the info you could possibly need (and trust us, there's a lot!)...

🍕🌮 We've got breakfast, lunch AND dinner covered in our street food area on Vaughan Street! Take your pick from classic street food cuisine from Spain, Mexico, Jamaica, China, Pakistan, and much more!

🍩🍯 This year we’ve got our biggest range of produce traders yet, all pitched up along Stepney Street for you to peruse! We've got the best of local chutneys, chillis, cheese (of the normal and cake variety), nuts, cupcakes, doughnuts, and more, especially for all you lovely lot!

🤩🛍️ There'll be even more stalls, this time selling crafts, in St Elli Shopping Centre, and even more again further afield in the Selwyn Samuel Centre’s Autumn Fayre! Do you see now why we keep calling it “mega”? We weren’t lying! 

🍻🎶 Once you’ve snagged all your treats, grab a drink and relax in our bar and stage area in Stepney Square! Check out the map above to see who'll be setting the soundtrack throughout the day!

😔❌ Unfortunately, Cook24 from Coleg Sir Gar can no longer make it, but there’s still plenty more to get stuck into 👇
