Located a few miles east along the North Wales coast is the medieval town of Conwy. Many of those familiar with the North of Wales will understand that this town holds significant historic value and has maintained much of its original features even until this day.

The grand medieval castle is the focal point of the town, with its strong presence overlooking the river, town and Conwy quayside.

Each year, for one weekend only, Conwy transforms into a food wonderland that brings together some of the best local producers of many types of foods. Officially the largest food festival of North Wales, this coming together of food reliably puts on a weekend of delicious produce that people travel to from far and wide.

The walled town homes the last ‘rake-only’ muscle fishing community in the UK and rather conveniently the ‘high-season’ for these delightful mussels is in October.

Beyond simply offering a range of food stalls, the programme of events includes music, art, farming and also showcasing Wales’ traditional building skills!

It is known that the event creates a large revenue for the North Wales economy and as such is hugely set up to ensure you the best range of choice when it comes to all food, music, crafts and acts!

Conwy is often visited by guests and residents of West Point Holiday Park North Wales as it is easily accessible via the A55 road. Typical driving time would be around 45 minutes.
