Welsh gypsy traditions to be celebrated.
The free event which is part of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month, will feature a youth talent show, music and performances, cultural exhibitions, a kids creativity corner and "dukkering" - the gypsy art of fortunetelling.
It will be opened by Councillor Judith Woodman, deputy leader of Cardiff council, in the Grand Hall of the Chamber of Commerce Building, Bute Street, Cardiff Bay, on Tuesday, from 10am.
Event organiser Michael Flynn, of Black Voluntary Sector Network Wales BVSNW, said: "We aim to give gypsy and travellers communities in Wales the opportunity to express and celebrate their culture.
"We want to raise awareness and positively promote their cultural practices and traditions amongst service providers and the general public."
The Kale who arrived in Britain from Spain in the 15th century, became the Welsh gypsies.
