Tafwyl is Cardiff’s annual Welsh arts & culture festival – a huge Welsh party!
The festival was established by local charity Menter Caerdydd in 2006 to celebrate the use of the Welsh language in Cardiff. In 2012 Tafwyl moved from the Mochyn Du, and was held at Cardiff Castle for the first time. Tafwyl’s footfall has grown incredibly over the last few years, from just over 1,000 in the Mochyn Du to over 38,000 at last year’s event at Llandaf Fields.
Tafwyl is a family friendly festival, and is a lively mix of music, literature, drama, comedy, art, sports, food & drink. The event is nine days in total: a fringe event held all around the city for 7 days, ending with the main event at Cardiff Castle on the 30 June and 1 July.
Entry to Tafwyl is free & open to all – Welsh speaker or not. It’s a great event for families, Welsh learners & people experiencing Welsh language & culture for the very first time.
Tafwyl is a showcase of the Welsh language and shows our culture at its best, so don’t miss out, join us and experience the uniqueness of Tafwyl – there’s a warm Welsh ‘croeso’ to everyone!
