Penarth’s Summer Festival returns on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th July.

Based on Penarth’s famous seaside Esplanade, Saturday features the thrills of the Downhill Derby soapbox race, with plenty of entertainment, street-food, games and live music before Saturday’s events are brought to a close with fireworks from the pier.

Sunday is Penarth’s traditional carnival day, with a host of free activities to engage all the family, in front of a water ski championship offshore.

Last year’s event attracted 20,000 over two days and this year is promised to be better than ever.

The line-up looks like this:
