Anglesey is proud to be hosting the annual Oyster and Welsh Produce Festival 2013. Building on its increasing reputations of being a fantastic, fun, intriguing and delicious event each year, 2013 is set to be the best one yet.
The event begun as an informal social event, where lots of oysters and alcohol was consumed, combined with strong music, signing and a range of Celtic dance types. A committee of volunteers was originally formed in the year 2000 to direct the event, helping it to build popularity, excellence and success over the following years. The festival was broadened to appeal to those who may not love oysters and seafood – and as a result, re-branded the festival as the Welsh Produce Festival – the ultimate Anglesey activity.
The festival still enjoys its oysters presence, attracting many oyster lovers – but at the same time – other meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables and sweets to appeal to everyone else. The festival takes place in Trearddur Bay Hotel, Trearddur Bay – a famous spot for its seaside and wealth of seafood.
All visitors will get to browse, sample and purchase the produce supplied by some of the most experienced and passionate food and drink producers in Wales. You’ll be able to enjoy cookery demonstrations, competitions and sample some of the excellent foods and drinks on offer.
The annual festival takes place on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October 2013 – and promises to be a fantastic day or weekend out perfect for all the family, or whoever you end up going along with. The festival is working hard to become self-financing and any surplus income will be reinvested into the following year’s festival. No dividends are taken by the organisers or directors and there are no direct costs with staff and employees.
Located in Holyhead on the Isle of Anglesey, there could not be a more fitting location for an event of this type, making it simply un-missable to anyone with the opportunity to attend!
