Picnic Penarth returns this weekend â€“ with a new location of Penarth Town Centre. Picnic Penarth always showcases the very best of local street food providers, with a helping of family entertainment on the side.
Penarth’s very own pop-up street food feast has enjoyed huge success over the years. Last year’s event saw over 14,000 attend on the Esplanade. Organisers, Penarth Town Council and local events specialists Production 78 are excited to bring the event to the town centre for the first time.
The event opens at 12 noon Saturday 14th September, with food and entertainment running until 10pm. Picnic reopens at 12 noon on Sunday 15th September, with fun and feasting continuing 7pm.
Organisers are delighted to welcome back a host of lip-smacking traders from previous events, along with mouth-watering new faces and many of our much -loved local businesses.
