Abergavenny Food Festival among UK best for Conde Nast

Published

Abergavenny Food Festival, which regularly brings thousands of people into the Monmouthshire town, made it into a list for the country’s best for 2024. 

Taking the number two spot on a list of the top ten food festivals in the UK this year, this festival is described as giving Welsh cuisine the spotlight. 

It offers plenty of local cuisine and includes demonstrations from celebrity chefs and experts and specialist markets.

The description on Conde Nast’s website reads: “While British food will always have our hearts, it’s time for Welsh cuisine to have the spotlight.

“Abergavenny’s food festival is doing just that. This year’s line-up features chef demonstrations from Anna Jones and Dina Macki, night markets with street food and a food-fuelled party on Saturday evening.”

Abergavenny has been making a name for itself on a national level, after being named the best place to live in South Wales by the Sunday Times in March. 

The local food scene and food festival were two of the reasons Abergavenny came out on top in this list, so it is no surprise to see it make the top two food festivals in the country.

It is clearly hugely popular, with customers pouring into last year’s event despite a heavy rain downpour. 

Dozens of traders and vendors are expected to be in attendance, offering something for even the fussiest of eaters.
