Barley Saturday / Sadwrn Barlys

  • Cardigan Town

A wonderful annual event to show case the finest local horses, they are judged in the morning and paraded through the town in the afternoon. Also in the parade is a great selection of vintage farm machinery and vehicles, plus plenty of flat caps!

The parade dates back to 1871 when it was a celebration of the end of the spring sowing season, with barley being the last cereal to be sown, after the wheat and oats.

It’s a special day of the year in Cardigan town.
