What is it?
Head to the Pembrokeshire seaside village of Saundersfoot in south west Wales to celebrate St David’s Day this year.
The village will be flying the flag for local produce at St David’s Food and Craft Festival over the weekend of 28th February and 1st March. On the Saturday the event will feature the Cawl Cooking Championship of the World and Elsewhere.
On both days of the festival there will be chef demonstrations and an array of stalls in the town’s Regency Hall. The stallholders will be offering seasonal Pembrokeshire and Welsh produce to try and buy, along with local arts and crafts. On the Sunday there will be a new Village Dragon Trail for families and children of all ages.
Now in its 16th year, the Cawl Cooking Championship of the World and Elsewhere takes place between 11am and 3pm on Saturday 28th February. The contest will see local restaurants compete to find the best dish of Cawl. Eateries will be catering for up to 400 people, on a first come first served basis, to sample the tasty, iconic Welsh dish. Votes will then be cast for the champion, which will be announced on Sunday 1st March.
The festival will take place between 10am and 6pm on 28th February, and from 10am to 5pm on 1st March.
