The Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza has been taking place in the gorgeous seaside town of Llandudno since 1986. The event runs every year over the Mayday Bank holiday weekend Day and over the years gets bigger and better! In 1986, when it began, there were approximately 30,000 visitors. In 2009 there were more than quarter of a million visitors.
As the name Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza implies the event is always Victorian themed to celebrate Llandudno's Victorian Heritage although there are modern attractions as well. There is always a mixture of fairground rides old and new, superb steam engines, live entertainment and daily parades - something for everyone. Guests are encouraged to come in Victorian dress but of course this is not compulsory. The aim of thethree day event is simply for visitors to enjoy themselves and celebrate the reasons why Llandudno became known as `the Queen of The Welsh Resorts'.
