Join us for an unforgettable experience at the annual Cardiff Ratha Yatra Festival, a vibrant celebration of traditional culture and cuisine!

On Saturday, August 12th, we will convene at King Edward VII Avenue (CF10 3NS) to take part in the colourful parade featuring an elaborately decorated chariot that we will pull through the city, as well as live music and traditional dance performances.

The procession leads us past Cardiff Castle and through the city centre, eventually leading us back to the park where you can immerse yourself in the lively atmosphere of our Bute Park Festival (next to the Secret Garden Cafe CF10 3ER). 

Here, you can indulge in a complimentary vegan/vegetarian feast, enjoy live drama and music, browse unique handicrafts, and participate in fun activities for all ages.

This is a must-attend event, so bring your family and friends and experience the joy and beauty of the world-famous Festival of the Chariots!

We look forward to seeing you there!
