Can I bring my dog? Yes, dogs are allowed at St Fagans as long as they are kept on a short lead. Dogs cannot be taken into the historic buildings or galleries, with the exception of guide dogs. 

What food will be on sale? A full list of traders will be announced soon. The Food Market will be full of local produce including cakes, preserves and cheeses. The Street Food Areas will have an array of cuisines from across the world, from traditional Welsh fare to pizzas, burgers, vegan food, Mexican, Japanese, Indian, ice cream and much more. The Museum’s shops, restaurants and cafés will also be open. 

Do I need to bring cash, or can I pay by card? We encourage you to pay by card where possible as most of the food stalls can take card payment. However, please note that you will need cash for some of the food stalls and some of the paid-for activities. There is a cash machine in the main entrance building, however, due to demand, we advise you to bring cash. 

What other activities will be available? There’ll be plenty of activities for all the family from traditional cooking displays, to talks and live music. The programme will be announced soon. 

Where on site is the event taking place? The Food Festival is a site wide event. The event map will be available online soon and will tell you where to find the food stalls and activities. Please note that food and drink cannot be taken into the historic buildings or galleries.
