About us

The Brecon Jazz Festival and the Brecon Fringe take place in our small town every August. The Brecon Frazz Parade links the two events with a public parade full of costumes, characters, fun and community involvement. 

For months before the August extravaganza, young and old, creatives, artists and Brecon folk meet to plan each year’s festivities, devise artistic creations to parade through the town and put on great workshops for children and families that are either local or visitors!

The event has become a tradition that brings colour and a wider creative engagement in the festival that brings so much to our town.

Come along, follow our social media and join in the fun. Meet new friends, get creative and be part of the Brecon community.
