Over the last 18 years, Abergavenny Food Festival has grown to become the largest food festival in Wales. The event enjoys an exceptional reputation as the place for chefs, food businesses, journalists and producers to come together. Abergavenny Food Festival is known for being an inclusive and welcoming event, delivering a delicious opportunity for people from all walks of life to explore and learn about food.
Through an unparalleled programme of activities, including product tastings, kids’ activities, masterclasses, hands-on cookery lessons and topical debates, we provide the inside track on food trends, enlightened thinking and rising stars emerging from the industry.
The Festival prides itself on transforming the way people think about food; challenging and promoting new ideas, pushing the boundaries of current thinking, and encouraging people to think differently about where their food comes from.
Over the years, the Festival has attracted top food heavyweights, such as: Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Jamie Oliver, Monica Galetti, Jane Baxter, Jose Pizarro and Valentine Warner, to name just a few. By engaging with influential chefs, commentators and journalists both nationally and internationally, we have grown to become one the highest profile food events in Britain.
