Why you should visit the Royal Welsh Winter Fair this November...

26 October 2017

Get that Christmassy feeling

What better way to kick-start the festive season with a visit to the Winter Fair. Open to everyone, the fair is a fantastic two days packed full of competitions, festivities, decorations, fairy lights, carols, seasonal treats and Christmas shopping.

Food, glorious food!

The food hall at the Winter Fair attracts producers from all over Wales and further afield and is packed full of culinary delights, demonstrations, perfect Christmas gifts and tempting tasters. There is also a lovely Farmers Markets and plenty of places to sit down, relax and sample what’s on offer. Come along, eat, drink and be merry!

Prize winning animals

The Royal Welsh Winter Fair has a reputation for being one of the finest prime stock shows in the UK, if not Europe. Proud stockmen bring there prize animals from far and wide to compete for a chance to win a championship title and their share of the £25,000 worth of prize money up for grabs.

Vying for first place…

It’s not just animals… the Winter Fair hosts a huge variety of different classes and competitions, including a horse, national Welsh poultry and hound show, dressed poultry, butchery, meat hampers, cookery, produce and handicraft, horticulture and floral art… there’s something for everyone to get involved in.

Christmas shopping

The Winter Fair offers the discerning shopper the perfect opportunity to pick up some unique and original Christmas gifts from the hundreds of tradestands found throughout the showground. Once again the fair will have a late night Christmas shopping evening on Monday 27 November, with free entry into the showground from 4pm.

Spectacular fireworks

Since our silver jubilee event in 2014, the fireworks display has been a firm favourite with Winter Fair visitors. You can catch the display at 7pm on the Monday night.

Music and song

Soak up the atmosphere as you wonder around the showground by listening to the many local school and community choirs and other artists performing beautiful renditions of Christmas carols and festive songs.

Bump into Father Christmas

We are very lucky to have Father Christmas as a regular visitor to the Winter Fair. He can be found, with his elves, in Tŷ Ynys Môn where he is happy to meet the younger visitors to the fair. They might even get an early Christmas present – if they’ve been good!
