This North American tradition is the largest gathering of the Welsh, descendants, and friends in North America celebrating the life, heritage, and culture of Wales. The festival is held in a different location each year, in either the U.S. or Canada, on the shared Labor Day holiday weekend. This year the event will be held in Lincoln, Nebraska, for the first time, with the Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel serving as the base for daytime events.
A Festival Day-Pass is required to gain entry to most daytime programming Friday and Saturday 8am – 5pm; a day pass costs $15 for youth/students, $40 for a single day, and $80 for two days. Separate tickets are required for meals, special events, and tours. Visit the festival website for more information and a full schedule.
