    Tafwyl: A Celebration of Welsh Language

    Tafwyl is an annual festival in celebration of the Welsh language, arts, and culture. The festival takes place in Cardiff and culminates with a two-day open-air festival, normally held in Cardiff Castle. Tafwyl was set up in 2006 and initially took place on a small scale outside the Mochyn Du pub near the city centre. Since 2012, it has been held at Cardiff Castle or in Bute Park, though in July 2017, it took place in Llandaff Fields. It forms part of a series of summer festivals entitled Cardiff Festivals.

    Tafwyl Fair

    Tafwyl is now split into two events: Tafwyl Fair, the main event at the weekend, and Tafwyl Week, a 7-day fringe festival the week before. The main weekend event includes bars (selling amongst other things the specially brewed beer 'Cwrw Tafwyl') and street food outlets. The organizers describe Tafwyl Week as featuring "Welsh culture at its very finest." The main festival is free to enter, and in 2017, it attracted over 38,000 visitors. The Tafwyl Fair at Cardiff Castle is the highlight of the festival. It features performances and appearances from some of Wales' biggest names in the arts, culture, and sport. Over both days, Welsh language music is center stage with performances in three on-site areas. The street food area always delivers delicious food from local producers and eatery owners, while stalls from Welsh makers prove a hit. A fringe festival runs alongside it, with events in various museums, libraries, cafés, bars, and arts venues across the city.
