Information

Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza is an annual three-day event held in the main street of the town over the May Bank Holiday weekend. Originally conceived and organised by the town council in 1986 as a means of boosting tourism, the event was later taken over by a volunteer-run company. In its early days, this Victorian-themed carnival featured traditional entertainments with many people wearing period costume. Over the years, however, the emphasis has shifted, with much of funding for the event now coming from modern funfair attraction operators. The Extravaganza is held in conjunction with the Llandudno Transport Festival, whose venue is the nearby Bodafon Fields in Craig y Don.
