MANY FAVORITES RETURN

 

Many favorite events from previous years will return, including the docent led tours of the Van Wert Chapel and Historic Downtown of Rockmart, Dudley's Movies, the 'Keeping Up with the Joneses' fun run and of course: Men in Rockmart (in Kilts)

 

The Food Tent will feature the great Bar-b-que Sandwiches & Welsh Desserts that the Festival is known for but also hamburgers, hot dogs & snow cones this year. The Museum Steps  will be awash with Welsh and local performers  throughout the day. An expanded Honey Contest & Show and Vendor's Village are being organized as well.

MANY NEW ACTIVITIES ARE PLANNED
More Fun & Games for folks of all ages!

"The Cricket Grounds" of last year will be converted into an almost Olympic Sports area to host the WELSH GAMES. This Sports extravaganza pits teams of 4 (made up from local groups & businesses) in a series of time tested athletic endurance tests, such as the classic 3-legged race, sack race  and egg & spoon race, for the title of WELSHlete of the 2014. 

ARDAL I BLANT/CHILDREN'S AREA
More Fun & Games for the young among us!
 
A special Ardal i Blant/Children's Area is planned for the 2014 Festival. This area will feature  special games, crafts, story telling and entertainment geared especially for younger children. Rumor has it Rocky the Dragon plans on visiting too! 
 
There will also be special WELSH GAMES events for the under 14's--so start planning your teams of 4!
