Sponsored post - Summer Events in Cardiff 2014

From sporting events to concerts, Cardiff really does have it all. But what can you see this summer? Here are a few suggestions:

FIM Speedway Grand Prix

This Grand Prix is the biggest motorsport event of the year to be seen in Cardiff and attracts over 40,000 fans to the Millennium Stadium each year. On the 12th of July, the stadium will come alive with the sound of engines revving and the smell of motor oil as the best speedway riders in the world compete to win this championship event. Speedway is a real heart in the mouth kind of motorsport and well worth a watch if you aren't familiar with the sport. The competitors race on powerful bikes that have no gears or brakes, at over 120kph, so there are always plenty of moments that have you gasping out loud and ultimately admiring the skill of these talented bikers.

Cardiff International Food and Drink Festival

Taking place between the 11th and 13th of July, the Cardiff International Food and Drink Festival is a great place for foodies to visit. Featuring the finest food, drink and crafts from Wales and around the world, this yearly festival is always a great hit with locals and visitors alike.

You'll find speciality cheeses, artisan breads, amazing liquors and wines, delicious patisserie and so much more to tempt your taste buds that you'll probably venture back every day just to try something different for lunch.

Cardiff Harbour Festival

Held on the August Bank Holiday, this Cardiff favourite returns again and this year it brings the UK leg of the Extreme Sailing Series with it. You'll get to watch 40 foot catamarans racing each other around the bay at tremendous speeds, enjoy the British Fishcraft Championships and visit the continental market. There's music at the bandstand and the beach will be transformed into a traditional seaside style beach, with donkey rides, candy floss and lots of stalls and entertainment to enjoy. It’s a great weekend away for all the family.
