13th Annual Malad Valley Welsh Festival

Welsh pioneers settled in the Malad Valley in southeast Idaho in the 1860s. Today Malad lays claim to the largest per capita concentration of residents with Welsh ancestry outside of Wales itself. The town celebrates this heritage with an annual eisteddfod, a Welsh festival patterned after traditional music and poetry contests that date back more than 900 years.

This year’s festival takes place on June 30, July 1, and July 2, 2017. Featured entertainers includes Welsh singer, songwriter, and musician John Good and poet Luci Washburn. Washburn has won the national Welsh Poetry and Prose Competition. Other events include choir performances, food, heritage games, arts and crafts, a quilt show, history presentations, and wagon tours of historic sites.

Festival events take place at multiple sites in Malad and in the neighboring town of Samaria. Malad is located 100 miles north of Salt Lake City, Utah and 55 miles south of Pocatello, Idaho.
