Trading at Maindee Festival

The 2019 Maindee Festival will be held on Saturday July 6th in the grounds of Maindee Primary School, Corporation Rd, Newport, South Wales NP19 0BH. The site is near the city centre on the east side of the river. The event has free admission for the public. Subject to fine weather, we expect up to 6,000 visitors for a 7 hour trading period from 12pm (mid-day) to 7pm.

If you are over 16 and have not traded anywhere before we can help you get started at Maindee Festival. Just send an email to to let us know you are interested.

We can then discuss your ideas and see how we can help get your stall up and running. No previous experience is needed, just a willingness to work hard to make a success of your stall on the day.

Almost all traders want to return the following year, so it is a good idea to book early.

Traders in arts, crafts, bric-a-brac, music/instruments, plants, fruit & veg and , ethnic goods report good business in the trading period. Our visitors come from culturally diverse communities. So the Festival is an excellent way for campaigns, advice and support groups to target minority groups.

Food traders must be registered with their Local Authority and compliant with all prevailing food hygene and safety requirements. Click here to download NCC food safety guidance.

All traders must be adequately insured to cover yourself for any liability that might arise as a result of your trading activities.

We want you to have a successful trading day at the festival and will be pleased to advise you, especially if you are a new trader or this is your first time at Maindee Festival.
