We’ve got everything covered on the culinary front. Whatever your tastes – rare and exotic, innovative or traditional – it’s all here. Our venues are the Market Hall and adjacent Upper Brewery Yard, and the Priory Centre (just a couple of minutes walk away).
You can buy top-notch seasonal produce from over eighty specialist exhibitors: fresh and cured meats, poultry and game, cheeses and chocolates, cakes and desserts, wines and liqueurs, ales, ciders and more. See inspirational chefs demonstrate Christmas recipes for you to try out at home. Make festive goodies in our ‘Secret Treats’ workshops (children and adults). And to round off the day there’s a community celebration of seasonal music with choirs, bands and a procession.
The Abergavenny Christmas Food and Drink Fair is an Abergavenny Food Festival event.
The Abergavenny Food Festival is a social enterprise and is run on a not-for-profit basis. Its remit is to promote food growers and processors, cooks, campaigners, artists and writers who in different ways celebrate the craft, diversity and culture of food. In doing so the organisation seeks to contribute to the regeneration of Abergavenny and the surrounding area and to bring benefits to the wider community. All funds raised (aside from a percentage set aside for the administration of the Festival) are reinvested into future events.
