Just before we start to look forward to the many Easter events in North Wales coming up soon, it’s time to look forward to the imminent Conwy Seed Fair which starts on the 26th of March in the famous medieval town.
In terms of history, not even Glastonbury can hold a candle to the seed fair in terms of long-lasting appeal as it’s been going for an amazing 700 years! The rich heritage of the times gone by will be evident when you take a walk through Conwy’s cobbled streets on the day itself.
Held by the Conwy Beekeepers association, the Conwy Seed Fair is a celebration of all things agriculture in one of the most cathartic settings possible. The town itself is typically quiet and accommodating for a great day out so it serves as the perfect venue for all.
The organisers themselves are strong believers in the maintaining the traditions of the North Wales town and also to bring awareness to the importance of beekeeping throughout the modern world. At the fair, they will be accepting donations to keep their tireless campaign going so be sure to dip into those pockets.
As for the fair itself, there’s nothing that can quite compare to local produce and it will be available in abundance from the town square. There will be a whole range of different stalls selling unique items that you’re unlikely to find anywhere else – if you’re looking to pick up some seed potatoes, you may never get a better chance or quality batch like those at the seed fair this March.
Also available will be locally sourced fruit, cakes, jams, honey and bread amongst many more. It’s not just food at the event for 2014 as there will also be masterfully created crafts available to you during your visit.
The diversity keeps on coming as you can also enjoy exhibitions from the likes of the RNLI, Incredible Edible Conwy, Friends of the Earth, Moelcyi Farm and more. There’s bound to be many people excited to visit the Conwy Seed Fair this year and you could be one of them and you have no excuse – it’s free entry!
