Malad Valley Welsh FestivalEdit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki

Malad Valley located in south-eastern Idaho, USA, was settled in the early 1860s by Welsh Immigrants. They brought with them their tradition of showcasing their cultural arts in a Welsh Eisteddfod. This tradition continued until the beginning of World War I.

The Malad Valley (Malad City, Idaho) continues to this day to have the largest per capita concentration of Welsh Ancestry outside of Wales. They have once again established the tradition of showcasing their cultural arts in a Welsh Festival.

A Welsh Society was organized in 2004 to preserve and promote their heritage. They meet monthly to learn about and share their Welsh traditions, history and heritage.

In 2005 a Welsh Festival was held. That festival exceeded the goals and expectations of the organizing committee. Each year since, the festival has become bigger and better.
