Autumn is the food festival season in North Wales. Until now. Inspired by similar festivals in South Wales, this year Caernarfon hosts its first food fest. Headlining is TV chef Bryn Williams, but he’ll be competing with the setting: the quayside fronting the tranquil tidal waters of the Menai Strait, the historic town square (Maes) and of course, Caernarfon’s wonderful castle. Great food, talented chefs and an inspiring location. All you need is a North Wales hotel within walking distance – so welcome to the Celtic Royal Hotel!

Hungry to know more about Wales’ newest food festival? Read on.

Caernarfon Food Festival – May 13 – May 14

Just imagine: You can hear the buzz of people around a busy food market, the clink of boat masts in the harbour. Lift your nose and smell fresh sea air and then the sumptuous aromas of fresh cooking. But why imagine all this when you can visit Caernarfon’s first food festival this month?

The programme features demonstrations from a range of talented chefs including North Wales’ own Bryn Williams, Cardiff’s Beca Lyne-Pirkis (who also has her own TV series on S4C), Masterchef competitor Matthew Guy and Daniel ap Geraint who runs Blas restaurant in Caernarfon. Then there are up to 60 stalls featuring mouth-watering produce from a range of local producers, many of whom will be tempting you with free samples and all a friendly smile.

There will be live music on offer including choirs and a local band performing. Youngsters will love Dr Zig’s Extraordinary Bubbles – they’re huge! You can have a go too.

Make a weekend of it & stay at Celtic Royal North Wales hotel

Even without a food festival there’s far too much to see and do in and around Caernarfon in one day! Celtic Royal is within walking distance of Caernarfon town centre, the castle, the quay and the old walled town. Leave the car in our car park. You’re free to enjoy some locally brewed real ales without needing to get a taxi. Celtic Royal is one of the few North Wales hotels to have its own gym and pool too.

If you fancy venturing further afield, bring your bike and cycle one of the off-road routes that lead out of town and into our beautiful countryside. Or jump on a steam train on the Welsh Highland Railway for a scenic chug into Snowdonia National Park.
