FAQs

How much does it cost?

There is absolutely no entrance fee to the event. We are often confused with the Llandudno Transport Festival which happens the same weekend on Bodafon fields in Llandudno. This is a separate event and does have an entrance fee.

We do however fund this event ourselves. It costs approx £80,000 to put on. If you see a bucket over the weekend and have some spare change please do give to help this event happen each year.

Do I need to bring money?

The event is free to attend, the entertainment is free, the exhibits are free to see and the daily parade is also free to watch. There are a number of fun fair attractions and stalls at the event that are chargeable. If you wish to participate you will be required to pay. Prices start from £2. There are a number of cash machines & Banks in Llandudno.

Is there parking?

The event is on the main streets of Llandudno which is closed to vehicle access. Llandudno has many car parks which you will find indicated on the map. All carry a charge and these charges can be found on the Conwy Couty Borough Council website. There's also parking along the promenade for a charge.
