Street food festival Picnic Penarth is returning for it’s third year at a new location later on this summer.

Penarth’s street food pop-up event is moving away from Station Approach this year and will instead be held on The Esplanade along the seafront.

The popular food festival which normally takes place during early April will move to make more use of the space along the seafront and to coincide with the Volvo Ocean Race.

Penarth Town Council says shifting Picnic Penarth to The Esplanade will take advantage of a “prime viewing location” for the yachting event and will “boost local tourism”



This year it takes place for 2 days  – Saturday June 9th and Sunday June 10th at the beautiful seaside location.

The event will be co-hosted with local AV and event company Genero and Penarth Town Council.


There is little information on which pop-ups will be attending this year, but we hope that this years’ event will be as great as last year with a few added additions to the event.

Applications to take part in this years’ event will be open in May

It’s On
Date: June 9th & 10th
