Thousands of people gathered at Wrexham’s Llwyn Isaf this weekend for Wrexham Feast, a hugely successful event that has put Wrexham firmly on the map when it comes to food festivals.
Taking place over two days on 25th -26th September, the event, delayed by over a year due to the Covid outbreak, proved to be a huge hit, attracting a huge number of traders and visitors from across the region.
A vast indoor marquee provided a home for the weekend to dozens of artisan food and drink producers, as well as a number of craft businesses and local charities. The demo kitchen, located within the marquee, also saw a diverse range of cookery demonstrations take place throughout both days, with a focus on sustainable cooking.
Outside, visitors - who were treated to glorious sunshine throughout the weekend - were spoilt for choice with a fantastic range of street food vendors and independent bars, accompanied by incredible entertainment from local bands and artists, as well as local dance groups and street performers.
Food aside, a particularly popular feature of the event was the axe-throwing, which proved a huge hit for visitors young and old.
This year’s event was the first to be held by the new organisers and has, without a doubt, set the bar high for the future. One thing, however, is certain - there is an appetite for more events like this in Wrexham - and with the organisers planning many more events over the coming months, there is plenty to be excited about.
