Barley Saturday at Cardigan

About

Barley Saturday has since the 19th Century, been held on the last Saturday in April – it is an unique event in Cardigan. Barley Saturday saw farmers from the surrounding area come to town to hire workers and to inspect stallions that are put out to stud.

These days the horses are the centre of attention. After the 12:00 judging of various horse competitions, held at Cardigan Secondary School, the crowds gather to watch the horses do their parade around the town of Cardigan at approximately 14:00

The horses are followed by a parade of vintage cars, motorbikes, tractors, carriages, milk floats and gypsy wagons.
