Enjoy a Summer of Festivals at Milford Waterfront

21/04/2022

Visitors can enjoy a variety of festivals at Milford Waterfront this summer.

The fun kicks off with the brand-new Festival of Fire. A collaborative project with Milford Waterfront, Tŷ Milford Waterfront and Street Food Warehouse, the Festival of Fire promises visitors family-friendly street food from 11:30am-10:30pm over the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the May Bank Holiday weekend. Entry is free throughout the day, and from 6:30pm – 10:30pm each evening, guests can enjoy the Fire Spectacular (£5 for adults and £3 for children) and will be able to purchase food and drinks from the fiery line up of traders, and live fire performances.  Booking for day or evening entry is essential.

On Saturday 14th May, Milford Haven Round Table will be bringing the Big Beer Festival back to Milford Waterfront from 12:00pm-11:00pm. The event, which raises funds to support charitable causes and community events, will include a wide selection of beers and ciders, a prosecco and Pimms bar, street food traders and the headline act, Sorted Ska Band.

And from 5th-7th August Street Food Warehouse will be back for the first time since 2019, with the annual Milford Haven Street Food Festival, with a variety of traders offering authentic street food.

Natalie Hunt, Activity and Events Co-Ordinator for the Port of Milford Haven commented: “I cannot express how happy we are to have a busy line up of events at Milford Waterfront this summer, after a challenging two years. We were able to do a couple of our annual events last year, and I am so excited to be offering a whole summer full of them this year.”

Notes to Editors

Milford Waterfront

Milford Waterfront is a multi-million pound regeneration project being led by the Port of Milford Haven. It aims to continue to develop the area which is home to Milford Marina and Milford Fish Docks into a vibrant destination, adding to the existing mix of leisure, retail and dining businesses and boosting the economy by providing long term, sustainable jobs.

A number of flagship projects have already been completed at the site including the opening of four custom-built Floatel Cabins, which offer a restful retreat for visitors looking for a unique glamping experience.

The new development will also celebrate the arts, culture and heritage of the area, working in partnership with key stakeholders. The Port already hosts a busy calendar of events at Milford Waterfront such as its popular Summer Fest campaign that included the Fish Festival, Beer Festival and Street Food Festival in 2019. Children’s activities and seasonal events such as fireworks displays and Santa visits also take place throughout the year, more information can be found on the What’s On page.

In April 2022 the new 100 bedroom Ty Hotel operated by the Celtic Collection opened and we hope more visitors will stay and experience all of the new and existing attractions here at Pembrokeshire’s hidden gem.
