St Buryan Agricultural Preservation Rally: A July weekend of vintage delight from working steam engines to old farming ‘technology’ from threshers to shire horses.

Mousehole Christmas Lights: Floating displays of lights in the harbour and around the tiny maze of streets of Mousehole, make this a stunning Christmas to New Year family event to witness.

Golowan and Mazy Day: A hugely creative, unmissable festival in late June, in Penzance, with processions, mock-mayor making, a quayside funfair and fireworks.

Lafrowda Festival, St. Just: A two-week event in July with something for all the family from ballroom dancing to stilt walking.
