Performers from across Wrexham and North Wales are set to entertain the crowds at this weekend’s food and drink festival.
And free parking will be available at all Wrexham Council-run town centre car parks (except for Tŷ Pawb) from 10am – so don’t miss out!
A full line-up of musicians and dance troops will take to the stage over the two day event, which will take place on Llwyn Isaf / Library Field in the town centre on Saturday, September 7 and Sunday, September 8.
As well as more than 80 local and regional producers selling everything from cheeses, pies gin, coffee and cakes (to name but a few), visitors can also enjoy live entertainment on the Wrexham Lager Stage / the bandstand on Llwyn Isaf.
Saturday will see performances from The Flow, Brook, The Hot Tub Ferret, Luke Gallagher, Jamie Hamlington, an Umpa band and Stayin Alive. Rhythm Train will close Saturday’s event, which will culminate in a spectacular fireworks display just before 9pm.
On Sunday, Isabella Crowther, Danny Gruff and Coverlovers will take to the stage.
Local dance troop, Delta Academy, will also be performing across the weekend.
Local chefs will offer cooking demonstrations, and fairground rides will also be on site.
“Incredible music and entertainment”
Andy Gallanders, event organiser, said: “Wrexham Food and Drink festival not only has delicious food and drink but also incredible music and entertainment.
“Visitors this weekend can expect to see some wonderful performances from some upcoming and well-known names in the local music scene.
“The weather forecast is looking great, so we look forward to seeing you all on Saturday and Sunday!”
Organiser Sam Regan added, “We are honoured to be showcasing the town of Wrexham this weekend, and believe this is a great example of what can be done when everyone pulls together for the greater good, and are delighted for the support and partnership working that is and has been taking place.”

“Events like these play a vital role”
Cllr Mark Pritchard, Leader of Wrexham Council, said “Events such as the Food Festival play a vital role in the economy of the town centre – not only by bringing visitors in to Wrexham and providing an excellent opportunity for local businesses and producers to show their wares, but also in enhancing our profile as a place where large events can take place. I hope residents come along and support it.”
“I’m delighted that the Food Festival has returned, and am very pleased that we have been able to support it once again with free parking.”
Cllr Terry Evans, Lead Member for Economic Performance and Regeneration, said: “I’m very pleased to see the Food Festival return to Llwyn Isaf, and I’m sure members of the public and traders alike will welcome the opportunity to see some of the produce that Wrexham, and the wider area, has to offer.”
Free parking – keep an eye on restrictions
Free parking will be available at all council-run town centre car parks – apart from Tŷ Pawb from 10am.
But restrictions on parking times will still be in place.
For example, if parking in a short-stay car park, you’d only be able to park there for the maximum time allowed, as stated at that car park.
And we’d advise members of the public that other restrictions, including for those parking elsewhere in the town, will remain in place as normal, and enforcement officers will be carrying out their normal duties.
For example, roadside parking spots, usually limited to 30 minutes of parking, will still be enforced as normal.
And the same applies for double or single yellow lines, and those using Blue Badge bays.
