Festivities and events to enjoy in West Cornwall
There’s one thing that West Cornwall is famous for and that’s its festivals, carnivals and entertainments…
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.
September Music Festival, St. Ives: Hugely popular festival featuring famous artists to street buskers
Minack Theatre: World-famous open-air theatre built into the cliff top over looking the sea at Porthcurno. Absolutely magical!
Newlyn Fish Festival: This delightful fishy event runs over the last weekend of August and features seafood, barbecues, seafood auctions and live entertainment.
