Held between Saturday, August 24th and Monday, August 26th the 12th annual Summer Fayre is one of the highlights in the National Park events calendar. You can browse over 70 stands showcasing the very best Welsh food, drinks, arts and crafts. Other festivities include live music, workshops demonstrations and games and activities for children.
What started as a humble fair saluting the Welsh arts industry has now grown into an unmissable treat for food lovers and art fans alike, with more than 10,000 enthusiasts visiting the Fayre every year to pick up some tasty goodies, a handmade gift or simply just savour the vibrant and friendly atmosphere.
Carys Howell, Member Champion for Visitor Centres said, “The Brecon Beacons Summer Fayre provides a platform to showcase the very best of local products, from food and drink to art and craft. Occasions such as this are vital for the local economy and also act as a glue binding the communities of the National Park. This year’s event promises to be another resounding success and a great day out.”
Andrew Powell, Catering Manager for the National Park Visitor Centre Tearooms, said of the three day spectacle: “Once again we’re delighted to be hosting the Summer Fayre, and we look forward to welcoming Fayre-goers from near and far to this popular event.
“With so much top quality Welsh food, arts and crafts, activities and live entertainment on offer, coupled with the incredible views of Pen y Fan and the Central Beacons, I can’t think of a better place to be on the August Bank Holiday weekend.”
Accompanying the Summer Fayre will be the third annual Cotswold Outdoor Show, displaying an array of tents of all shapes and sizes suitable for any kind of adventure.
