The Llangollen Fringe Festival is an independent arts festival, usually held in mid July in the town hall. The Fringe includes music, comedy, theatre, dance and workshops.

Dee Rocks is a local fundraising music festival, usually held during May when the town hall is transformed into a music venue.

Llangollen Museum has been open since 2002. The museum was set up by a group of volunteers to allow both visitors and local people easy access to information and displays about the heritage of the area. In 2004 Llangollen Museum became a registered charity and moved to the present location in the centre of town.
