Rhayader Carnival 2018

Sat 14th – Sun 22nd July 2018

Rhayader Carnival Week is a combination of Art, Sport and Culture – some of which you will only ever see in the small Mid-Wales market town of Rhayader. In true carnival style, the week is 9 days long! The Carnival Committee had to extend the week to make it all fit!

Rhayader Carnival Week offers four world championship events as well as a chance to climb Rhayader’s highest mountain in the fell run. If sport is not your thing then just grab a pint in one of the many pubs in Rhayader, take a seat and watch, or maybe go to one of our other events like the Vintage Show, The Grand Quiz or the Gro Gathering, a music festival in Wales.

The week’s highlight event is of course the Carnival Day, with Queens from 5 local towns and a large entry of floats and walkers taking part in the parade. After the parade, everyone heads down to the park to crown the Rhayader Carnival Queen and enjoy the fete atmosphere.

Three apartments offering stylish, pet friendly self catering accommodation in the heart of Rhayader, near the Elan Valley are nestled in the centre of Rhayader Carnival activities, the procession passes the front door.

Sleep 18 in our group accommodation and make The Old Drapers, The Bakehouse and The Cwtch your home from home in Mid Wales. Take advantage of our short breaks, perfect for couples and family getaways. The Old Drapers, our accessible apartment is ideal for disabled holidays.
