Tafwyl is an annual festival celebrating the Welsh language, arts and culture. It was established in 2006 as part of the core work of Menter Caerdydd, a charity that promotes and extends the social use of the Welsh language in Cardiff. 

Tafwyl’s audience has grown impressively over the years from just over a thousand people during its early years to nearly 40,000 in 2019. 

The 2017 Festival came out on top in the Cardiff Music Awards and was awarded the title of ‘Best Cardiff Festival’ in March 2018. In July of this year Tafwyl in collaboration with Cardiff University and Cardiff and Vale College took the top prize in the category Arts, Business and the Community at the Arts & Business Cymru Awards ceremony. 

Tafwyl is a family friendly festival, with a lively mix of music, literature, drama, comedy, art, sports, food & drink held over 9 days across the city. The main event will take place over the weekend of 19 – 21 June 2020 in the beautiful surroundings of Bute Park, immediately behind Cardiff Castle.
