Overview

The Ceredigion Walking Festival is one of the month-long events being promoted by the tourism association for Ceredigion, Twristiaeth Ceredigion Tourism, through its Cardigan Bay Events web site. The aim is to encourage walking groups throughout the county to organise walks and walking-related events during the month of September, the month chosen because the weather is usually good and accommodation is generally more readily available for participants.

Cardigan Bay Events have organised a range of themed events for the year:

Jan - Feb The 28 Days of Romance
April Activities - "Get Active in Cardigan Bay"
September Ceredigion Walking Festival
October Cardigan Bay Food Month
Nov - Dec Christmas Fairs and Shopping for Christmas in Cardigan Bay
