Community Project

Aberjazz Parade

Aberjazz is a local live music promoter based in the twin towns of Fishguard and Goodwick, that organises local music events, mainly in Fishguard. The main Aberjazz event of the calendar is the Fishguard Jazz & Blues festival, which runs for 5 days over the August bank holiday weekend.  This comprises about 35 events in various venues, a jazz parade and the Aberjazz Fringe which takes place in various pubs in the town.

The Aberjazz parade planned for the August Bank Holiday 2021 will be a major attraction, with local involvement, themed fancy dress and workshops throughout August. On the parade day, the town will be filled with street artists and a portable busking stage will attract buskers.

The parade will celebrate local history such as the first flight across the Irish Sea, the last invasion, local pirates and the Happidrome, Goodwick’s first and only cinema.  The Market Hall will come to life with craft stalls, street food, buskers, fire eaters, jugglers and a gin wagon.
