Food Festivals

Food Festivals

Cornwall is known for its community spirit, so festivals are high on the agenda here. Many celebrate our rich history such as St Piran’s Day, Daphne du Maurier Festival in Fowey and Trevithick Day in Camborne.

Festivals are a celebration, and what better cause to rejoice than food? Food festivals tend to last a few days and given our unique location, they often come with stunning backdrops. From seafood festivals to food and drink extravaganzas, we love a good shindig. The Cornish coast stretches 422 miles so you may need to travel to get your food festival fix, but we can guarantee it’ll be worth it.

Here in Cornwall we’re proud of our abundance of produce and we want everyone to try it. From locally-caught fish and grass-fed and free-range meat to the Cornish take on pad Thai and stuffed rotis – there’s plenty to shovel down or take home, just make sure you arrive hungry!

Food festivals do happen all year round in Cornwall, but are most popular during the summer months to make the most of the Cornish sunshine (we can always hope). The Great Cornwall Guide will keep you up to date so that you get your festival fix and soak up local delicacies too.
