Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival Back for 2024!

Foodie favourite Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival is back with a bang again this year, with a whole host of tasty treats to tempt festival goers for the end of the May Bank Holiday Weekend on Sunday, 26 – Monday, 27 May 2024.

Alongside the regular favourites, plenty of new and exciting additions for 2024 are promised! The Drunken Sailors will be dropping anchor- converted from an old fishing boat, she is truly one of a kind- serviced by a hearty crew and offering the very best draught beers and ciders on tap. Hot vegan and vegetarian food, and homemade kits, will be available from Gloucester-based Slad Valley Mushrooms. Coffee lovers will delight in a first appearances by Cowbridge’s 96degrees. Tetrim Teas Cymru will be bringing a range of their nature-based teas to the festival for the first time, and adding an exotic twist. The team from Welsh Saffron will be showcasing their unique product, all grown on the rolling lowland hills between Caerleon and Usk. Plus, the Lemoneers will be adding extra festival fizz with their homemade lemonade!

As well as the main festival site at the Arthur John Car Park, the Old Hall Gardens will be buzzing with lots of family-friendly activities to enjoy, like willow weaving, pétanque and birds of prey, to name but a few.

In another fabulous festival first, the Vale Food Trail will be celebrating sustainability with a fun timetable of children’s activities. The much-loved food demonstrations are also set to return, providing extra entertainment at the Duke of Wellington.

Due to popular demand, the festival will stay open until 6pm on the Sunday, allowing visitors even more time to sample, savour and soak up the vibe.

Speaking about this year’s event, Festival Manager Tracy James-Lieberman said: “We’re gearing up for another great event this year- old favourites that we know are always a real hit but also plenty of new faces who our visitors are going to absolutely love.”
