Novemberfest 2017

Mold’s Novemberfest is a festival of Real Ale, Real Food and Real Entertainment!
This year the sixth Novemberfest will take place from the 10th to 12th November 2017.

The main focal point is in St Mary’s Church Hall, hosting over 30 real ales, real lager, local cider and great wines, accompanied by great food and live music. Other venues in and around Mold will be participating as all businesses are encouraged to enter into the spirit of Novemberfest by doing something special.

This event is organised by Mold Town Council with the support of Mold and Buckley Lions, the local CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) branch, and a group of volunteers. Novemberfest is a not-for-profit festival, all proceeds of the festival go towards putting on other events in the town and a nominated charitable cause.
