National Eisteddfod of Wales – 2019 Conwy
August 2 - August 10
The National Eisteddfod is the national festival of Wales, its language and culture. This arts festival is also Wales’ oldest festival; the first Eisteddfod was held at Cardigan Castle in 1176, although it was definitively established as an annual event during the 1860s. The festival visits North and South Wales on alternate years.
Annually the National Eisteddfod takes place for eight days at the start of August, and the central festival field is a vibrant one, teeming with stands, stalls and shops, food, music, arts and crafts, design and architecture.
