This "must see" festival takes place in one of Europe's largest Castles in the town of Caerphilly. Every summer it presents a spectacular reenactment of old Wales with its customs and traditions. This is a "carnival" of street entertainers, folk singing and dancing, falconry, fire eating, minstrels, troubadours, and everything related to the history of Caerphilly. The fresh food and drinks, music, entertainment, and funfair last for three days and nights.
