Aberdare Festival returning for 2023!

Written by on 17th March 2023

Aberdare Festival returns on Saturday 6th May 2023 so why not come and spend part of the bank holiday weekend in stunning Aberdare Park and enjoy all the entertainment on offer? 

This year, the event will include celebrations for the Coronation of King Charles III.  The event runs from 11am – 5pm, entry is FREE and there’s a whole host of free family fun and entertainment, as well as a funfair, food stalls and live entertainment already confirmed.

Further activities and attractions are set to be confirmed in the coming weeks so please follow @whatsonrct on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates.  Information will also be available on the festival’s website www.aberdarefestival.co.uk

Cllr Maureen Webber, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Council Business, said:

“Aberdare Festival 2022 was a record breaker with thousands of residents and visitors enjoying the free entertainment and of course, all the activities that are permanently on offer in Aberdare Park, such as the lake and boats and Aquadare splashpad.

“Both Aberdare Park and Aberdare Festival are jewels in Rhondda Cynon Taf’s crown so it’s fitting the festival will be held over the weekend of the coronation of King Charles III.  I hope residents and visitors come along to enjoy a great start to this year’s extra bank holiday.”

 Aberdare Festival 2023 is sponsored by Nathaniel Cars, who have been keeping the residents of Rhondda Cynon Taf and beyond on the road for more than 35 years, as trusted car dealers with branches in Cardiff and Bridgend.
