Family Easter Events Cardiff and South Wales 2019

If you’re in or around Cardiff this Easter you’re probably interested in what family friendly events are available. This year the school Easter holidays in Wales fall between 15th April to 26th April, with Easter Sunday on 21st April, but some of the Easter themed events start a little earlier so I’ve included the weekend before as well. There are lots of fun Easter themed activities around Cardiff in 2019 and I’ve rounded them up.

These Easter events are all based in or around Cardiff and are organized in order of starting date.

Please make sure you click through to the website provided to double check all the details with the event provider. Some events may need booking in advance or sell out and dates can always change – so don’t travel to specific timed Easter events without checking to avoid disappointment.
