florist stallThe future of the Portmeirion Food and Craft Festival has finally been secured, thanks to the help of a Welsh Government grant worth £6000.

The festival saw more than 50 exhibitors showcase their local delights at the festival last year, with hope now of allowing the festival to enjoy long term continued success, which helps the local economy, tourism and promotion of the area.

Robin Llywelyn, managing director of the Italianate village near Porthmadog, said: “We are very pleased to announce that the food festival will return to Portmeirion this year following last year’s success.

“This is an excellent opportunity for businesses throughout Wales to showcase their produce to a wider audience here at Portmeirion”.

Exhibitors have included the very best of Welsh food, crafts, drinks and much more – all from local and regional exhibitors that set up stalls to serve the locals and visitors of the town of Portmeirion. Some of the business that set up stalls last year include Puple Moose Brewery, Cwrw Llyn and Glasfryn Farm Shop.

Meurig Jones, Portmeirion’s attraction manager, added: “We are very grateful to the Welsh Government for their support to stage this prestigious event.

“This festival will undoubtedly help the local economy – and Portmeirion is the perfect setting for exhibitors and the visiting public.”

This years Portmeirion Food and Craft Festival has been confirmed to take place on 1st December, which is great news for many!
