Llanelli town centre is set to be packed with all the best of local food producers as Llanelli Food and Drink Festival returns this Saturday 16th October!

There’ll be a multitude of mouthwatering treats on offer from hot street food vendors, local producers selling a range of cakes, chutneys, savoury bakes and alcohol, all from 9am to 5pm. The event is free to attend, and there will be free parking in all town centre council car parks for the day. 

Chair of Ymlaen Llanelli BID, Lesley Richards, is grateful to see events back in the town centre: “Our last food festival in 2019 feels like such a long time ago, so it’s great to have it lined up as one of our first events back.  

“The atmosphere at our vintage festival in September was incredible, you could really tell that people were thrilled to be back in the town centre. We’d like to bring that atmosphere back on Saturday, but this time with a celebration of all things food and drink!” 

It’ll be a celebration indeed, as festival-goers can sit back and enjoy their goodies in Stepney Square as local musicians take to the stage from 10am to 5pm.  

There’ll be a chance to try your hand at some food-making techniques in St Elli Shopping Centre from 10am, as A Taste of Times Past will be hosting free pickling and pasta-making workshops. The kids can also get involved in the crafty fun as Annibendod, the vintage bus pottery bus, will be stationed at the top of Vaughan Street with Mad Hatter’s Tea Party themed pottery.  

Our food festival poster is available to download below, so spread the word!
