Snowdonia & the Lleyn Peninsula Events - September & October


September and October are usually lovely months to visit Wales with favourable weather and no crowds to impact on your experience. We have chosen our favourite events taking place in the Snowdonia area as Summer makes way for Autumn.


Festival No. 6

★ Thursday 7th to Sunday 10th September 2017 ★ Portmeirion ★

You never really need an excuse to visit Portmeirion, an Italianate village attraction on the North Wales coast, close to where Snowdonia meets the Lleyn Peninsula. However from Thursday 7 to Sunday 10 September thousands of people will make their way to this amazing place to enjoy Festival No. 6. Taking place since 2012 the art and music family-friendly festival has gone from strength to strength and features a wide range of music genres from folk, to rock and roll!

Barmouth Walking Festival

★ September 2017 - dates TBC ★ Barmouth and the surrounding area ★

This well-established and popular event offers a variety of walks for people of all abilities over the 10 days of the festival. Beginners can enjoy shorter walks over easy terrain whereas those with more experience have a good choice of medium or long routes. For the super fit there are two really long walks are usually organised on the two Saturdays of the festival. The festival is a great opportunity to discover or appreciate anew the beauty of the Mawddach Estuary and Southern Snowdonia.

Cambrian Coast Sportive

★ Saturday 16th September 2017 ★ All routes begin in Aberdyfi LL35 0RT ★

With a choice of 4 routes, all beginning in the coastal village of Aberdyfi and winding their way up the coast and into the Snowdonia National Park, this cycling challenge takes in some of the most spectacular scenery Wales has to offer. All the routes are comprehensively sign-posted with at least 3 feed stations and over half of each route takes the cyclists on minor back roads so provides a relatively safe yet tarmaced surface to make for a smooth riding experience.
