Ffiliffest 2024
A free entry fun-packed festival will take over the Owain Glyndwr Playing Fields on Crescent Road, Caerphilly on Saturday June 8th.
Ffiliffest is Menter Caerffili’s summer celebration of the Welsh language and of local Welsh culture and the event will include performances, entertainment, activities, workshops, food and drink stalls and a chance to buy produce from local businesses. The event returns again and it will be a fun-filled day for the whole community!
Menter Caerffili has worked closely with Caerphilly Town Council, Caerphilly County Borough Council, community groups and performers to plan the event which is unique to the area.
Hundreds of local school children have been preparing and practising traditional Welsh folk dancing to stage the largest performance in the county as one of the highlights of the event.
This year the festival goes on untill 7:00pm, with performances by Welsh language musicians Martyn Geraint, Allan yn y Fan, Caerphilly Male Voice Choir, Wonderbrass, Mr Phormula, The Gentle Good, Mei Gwynedd a Band Tŷ Potas, Iest, Paid Gofyn as well as performances by local children and young people.
There will be gift stalls, and various food and drinks stalls including vegetarian food and a beer and cider bar. Many activities and fun educational workshops will also be at the event including an arts and craft tent, circus skills, a retro video games area as well as sporting activities – all free of charge!

“At Ffiliffest, we welcome people of all ages to enjoy the Welsh language and culture in a fantastic setting. This event provides opportunities for people to enjoy an amazing programme of performances, lots of activities for children, a food area and information from local organisations. We are really excited to see this event grow year by year.”
