Food and Drink
Food and drink? We've got it. And how!
The Feast has 150 food stalls, an outdoor market, a busy beer tent and, new for this year, the Feast cocktail and champagne bar and a Vegan café.
Our Cocktail and Champagne Bar is the place to party all weekend.
Sample cocktails made from local ingredients as well as classic mixes, or sip a glass of champers. You choose.
Lovely local seafood will be on sale here too.
With video projections and DJs it will be hard to miss and you will find it on the quayside.
You will find the Vegan Café in St John’s Church Hall on Rosehill Street. And hurry - they are offering free brunch and afternoon tea.
Eating out? Food from the cafes and restaurants of North Wales' five rural counties will be celebrated in our Rural Food Tent.
You can find it next to the True Taste Kitchen in Vicarage Gardens.
Our advice? Arrive at the Feast feeling hungry and bring lots and lots of shopping bags

Food and Drink History Trail
Gwledd Conwy Feast is the world's first food festival to feature a mobile phone trail of food and drink heritage sites!
The circuit was devised by the community-based HistoryPoints project which has placed QR barcodes on more than 50 points of interest around Conwy - each one selected not for marketing purposes but because it really is interesting!
Now more than a dozen locations have been linked as the Conwy Food & Drink walking tour. Follow the circuit in either direction to discover fascinating facts including:
- why tasty Conwy mussels, fished since Roman times or earlier, were fed to livestock until the 20th century
- why the legendary engineers George and Robert Stephenson banqueted in Conwy
- how four Welsh breweries made history by getting together to run a pub
- why a weekly pig market was held in the back yard of a tavern
- how Conwy scientists solved the problem of food poisoning from shellfish
- why the native Welsh fruit species Denbigh Plum should have been named Conwy Plum!
