Christmas in Cardiff Bay

Christmas at Cardiff Bay | 7 - 9 December

Join us for a weekend of festive family fun as we celebrate Christmas at Cardiff Bay.

Enjoy a varied entertainment programme including carol singing, brass bands and solo artists on the bandstand. There will be funfair rides, street walkabout entertainment and the opportunity for children to meet Santa in his grotto and to take part in arts and craft workshops.


The popular Christmas markets return, offering a variety of unique stalls. Browse arts and crafts, local food and handmade jewellery.


Pull a Christmas cracker for a Guinness World Record attempt in association with the Fire Fighters Charity, and join in the countdown with Capital FM for a spectacular firework display over the water on the Saturday night.


On Sunday ‘Youth Beats on Radio Cardiff’ will launch its new programme as the City’s young people take to the stage and the airwaves with a unique Christmas sound. Join in the festive fun with the Pedal Power Elf Cycle Ride along the Cardiff Bay Barrage.
