There will be something to please all tastes at a massive foodie event being held on Saturday, May 9th in Haverfordwest. And there will be some great music through the day too.

Haverfoodfest is billed as the county town’s first food festival.

And live music too 

You will be able to eat your way through the day at the Haverfoodfest, where 48 fantastic stalls will be offering everything from pasta to pies and pastries, to ice cream, cakes, cheese and chocolate.  And there will be demo kitchens hosted by top chefs who will make a range of savoury and seet dishes.

This is an event for the whole family – a chance to spend a day tasting the best local produce in a great atmosphere of fun and fabulous entertainment. 

Haverfoodwest will be held in the grounds of County Hall and the Picton Centre from 10am to 6pm on Saturday, May 9th.

With a thriving farming sector that produces poultry, beef, lamb, dairy products, potatoes and more, businesses are able to offer an abundance of excellent local produce. Seven businesses in the town have got together to launch this first food festival in Haverfordwest and they hope to make it an annual event. 

The main demonstration kitchen will be in the Picton Centre, where celebrity chef Angela Gray will present a number of dishes through the day. She is a ambassador for Hybu Cig Cymru and hosts regular events to promote the quality and versatility of Welsh Lamb. She will be joined in the demo kitchen by several talented local chefs. 

Nutritional experts will also demonstrate healthy snacks and drinks in the NutriTent marquee, where chocolate will be a special feature. Nutritional? Chocolate? Well, we’ll find out, won’t we! 

NutriTent demos will be by Healthaspire, Pembrokeshire Cook, Eat Well Feel Well and Wickedly Welsh Chocolate. And there will be a Man v Food competition featuring the biggest bumper burger ever created! 

A mix of singers and music performers are on the bill, playing verything from popular covers to original contemporary material. They include Ragsy, Lucy Jones, Kyle Kirkhouse, Caroline Harrison, Jessie Doughty, Matt & Misty, Raul Speek, and the Jumping Fleas ukulele group. 

The festival committee is under the chairmanship of Carol Norgrove, with Sally Williams from Just Nice, Lise Matthews from The Ark, Donna Jones from the Creative Cafe, Brett Kilner from Purple Dragon, Gary Lewis from County Sports and Brian Harries from the Bristol Trader.
