Members of Conwy BKA have organized Conwy’s 700-year old Royal Charter Fairs every year since 1990. The Seed Fair and the Honey Fair have grown into major events again, attracting very large crowds of visitors to the town.
We wish to thank Conwy County Borough Council, Conwy Town Council, Conwy Chamber of Trade and the residents of Conwy town for their support.
Conwy Seed Fair, Friday 1st April 2016, 9am to 4pm
Plant stalls, seeds, home produce and local crafts in the High Street and Lancaster Square. The 2014 Seed Fair will include over 50 varieties of seed potato for sale.
Conwy Honey Fair, Monday 14th September 2015 and Tuesday 13th September 2016, 9am to 4pm
Conwy has a very long association with honey and beekeeping. The Conwy Honey Fair takes place in the High Street and Lancaster Square every 13th September (or 14th September if the 13th is a Sunday). The Honey Fair is an opportunity for beekeepers to sell their honey, and for the public to meet beekeepers, talk about bees, and buy local honey and hive products, including beeswax candles, beeswax polish and honey soaps. Plus… plant stalls, home produce, and local bee-related crafts.
The 2015 Fair will be the 26th Honey Fair organized by us. Don’t miss it! Why not make a long weekend of it? There are plenty of nice places to stay in Conwy.

Ffair Fêl Conwy
Mae perthynas Conwy â gwenynwyr yn mynd yn ôl ganrifoedd. Mae Ffair Fêl Conwy a gynhelir bob blwyddyn ar Stryd Fawr Conwy, ar y 13eg o Fedi, yn gyfle i wenynwyr werthu eu mêl ac i’r cyhoedd gyfarfod â’r gwenynwyr a phrynu mêl lleol a chynnyrch y cychod gwenyn megis canhwyllau, cwyr dodrefn a sebon a wnaed o gwyr gwenyn.
Mae gan Ffair Fêl Conwy siarter ers 700 mlynedd ac fe’i sylfaenwyd gan Edward I. Mae’r gwenynwyr lleol yn gwerthu oddeutu tunnell o fêl erbyn amser cinio. Ni chodir tâl am stondin. Yn ogystal â’r stondinau mêl, mae yno hefyd grefftau, planhigion a chynnyrch lleol. Mae nifer o atyniadau o fewn tref gaerog Conwy, sydd yn Safle Treftadaeth y Byd.
