Even though Snowdonia holiday parks offer complete tranquillity for their guests, they’re never too far from the brilliant annual events taking place within North Wales throughout the year. The summer months are a fantastic time to visit the region as there’s always something to do.
We’re looking forward to the warmer weather and the upcoming events that will be taking place near West Point. If you need some ideas for days out, take a look at what events are coming up over the next few months.
Beddgelert Fun Day
This year Wales is celebrating the Year of Legends, meaning that there will be plenty of events based on the myths and legends of the area. One such event is the Beddgelert Fun Day on Tuesday, 30th May.
Taking place in the small village of Beddgelert, there will be a host of activities including kite flying, welly-throwing and storytelling.
The village is just over 30 minutes away from our park, meaning you won’t have to go too far to entertain the kids.
You’ll also get the chance to visit Gelert’s Grave along the banks of the River Glasylyn, before hearing the sad tale of the faithful hound.
Conwy Pirate Festival
If you’re willing to travel a little further afield and will be visiting us very soon, the Conwy Pirate Weekend will be returning to the town of Conwy between May 27th- 29th.
This much-loved annual event takes place on the Conwy quay, and is completely free to attend. Visitors are encouraged to dress up in their best pirate costume, and there’s a prize for the most convincing!
With a variety of live performances and plenty of activities including barrel races, cannon firing and a pirate parade through the town, it promises to be a brilliant weekend for both adults and children alike.
Rock Ardudwy Festival
South of our park is the town of Harlech, which is home to a huge medieval castle that you can spend the day exploring.
Whilst this may be a good enough reason to visit as it is, next month the town will be host to the Rock Ardudwy Festival.
Taking place on June 3rd, this festival will feature a variety of live bands, bars & food stalls (BBQ stalls and even a prosecco bar!), as well as activities and a separate play area for children.
Rail Ale Festival
Coming up very soon, and certainly one exclusively for the adults is the Rail Ale Festival. Taking place between May 19th – 21st in the Dinas Railway Station, you’ll only have to travel ten minutes up the road for this event.
The railway station will be transformed into a bar and music venue, with a superb selection of local Welsh ales, cider and perry available to try.
There will also be regular steam-hauled trains passing through the station, which will take guests on scenic route through the Snowdonia countryside.
