The Llandudno Transport Festival ot Festival of Transport is held on the May Bank holiday weekend each year on the Bonafon Farm fields to the East of the Welsh seaside resort of Llandudno. The transport festival is on of the larger events dedicated to preserved older vehicles, with several noted road runs held during the event. A 'free' bus service is run between the town & the show site so visitors can visit both without the ~1 1/2 walk along the sea front to get to the town or the show. The Bus service uses a number of Classic buses and the occasional Vintage one and runs throughout the day till about 5- 6 o'clock each day. Then on the Saturday & Sunday a road run takes place from the Transport festival site up through the town & up or round the Great Orme on alternate days.

Every year in May Bank Holiday weekend, Llandudno has a three-day Victorian Carnival and Mostyn Street becomes a funfair. Madoc Street and Gloddaeth Street and the Promenade become part of the route each day of a mid-day carnival parade. The Extravaganza is spread out on the main street & sea front with a selection of Steam engines, Fairground rides and side stalls based on a Victorian theme, with many people in costumes from the period. The Idea being to recreate the resorts Victorian feel from its hay day when trains brought wealthy Victorians to the seaside in the late 1800's and early 20th century.
