Aberdare Festival

Aberdare Festival is back – with a two-day extravaganza to celebrate its 2022 return! 
The ever-popular event in Aberdare Park has been extended this year to include celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Free family fun and entertainment, as well as a funfair, food stalls and live entertainment have already been confirmed for the festival on June 3 and 4.
Further activities and attractions are set to be confirmed in the coming months but, one thing is guaranteed, it will be a great couple of days out for all the family.
Aberdare Festival takes place in stunning Aberdare Park on June 3 and 4. Entry is free and the event will run from 11am to 5pm both days. As well as being home to the festival, the park has acres of open spaces, a Victorian lake with boats, adventure playground and lots more to explore.
If you are visiting the area for the Festival, why not stay a little longer and explore historic Aberdare, known as the Queen of the Valleys. You can even stay on the caravan site at nearby Dare Valley Country Park or the welcoming Dare Valley Cottage.
Plan your weekend right and you might even be able to fit in a once-in-a-lifetime experience at Zip World Tower, which has the world’s fastest seated zip line, Phoenix, and the Tower Coaster.  Or if you prefer an experience back in time, head to A Welsh Coal Mining Experience at Rhondda Heritage Park, for an award-winning Black Gold Underground Tour, led by men who were once coal miners.
Aberdare Festival 2022 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 a trusted car dealers with branches in Cardiff and Bridgend.
