5 unmissable annual events in Cornwall
Aug 2019
 

If you’re thinking of moving to Cornwall or are new to the area and wondering what there is to do, read on. Here are some of the biggest annual events the county has to offer.

                        

Falmouth Week

Held every August, Falmouth Week turns the seaside town into a hive of activity that brings together thousands of residents and visitors. Its origins as a sailing regatta date back at least as far as 1837 and the maritime element is still very much in evidence, with a packed calendar of fleet racing and day boat racing around Falmouth Bay. Landlubbers may prefer the shoreside events, which include nightly musical entertainment in Events Square, an impressive Air Show over the seafront, and a fireworks display to round off the week with a bang.

Helston Flora Day

Celebrating the arrival of spring and all the new life associated with it, the ancient Flora Day festival is held in Helston on May 8th every year (unless the date falls on a Sunday or Monday, in which case Flora Day is on the previous Saturday). Nearly every Helston resident gets into the spirit of the event, decorating houses and shop fronts with greenery and flowers to symbolise vitality and renewal. Celebrations begin with the 7am dance, although the principal midday Furry Dance (originally reserved for Helston’s gentry and still performed on an invite-only basis) is the main event.

The Royal Cornwall Show

Cornwall’s biggest agricultural show takes place at the Royal Cornwall Showground near Wadebridge every June and features three packed days of family entertainment. Owners and breeders proudly show off their prized animals (categories include livestock, dogs, rabbits, and even bees), kids enjoy traditional steam fair rides, and adults sample the many varieties of local food and drink on offer while listening to some of the county’s best musical entertainment.

Boardmasters Music Festival

Newquay’s eco-friendly, surf-oriented summer festival takes place every August and attracts some of the country’s biggest music acts. Previous headliners have included The Chemical Brothers, Ed Sheeran, Calvin Harris, and Fatboy Slim. Surfing, skating, and BMX competitions provide additional daytime entertainment and festivities continue long past sundown.

St Ives Festival

Held every September, the two-week festival of music, films, comedy, theatre, exhibitions, and guided walks in one of Cornwall’s most popular seaside towns attracts visitors from all over the world. Some of the bigger events require tickets purchased in advance but there are also numerous street artists, impromptu musical gigs, and open studios if you prefer to soak up the atmosphere at your own leisure.

If you are thinking of moving to Cornwall, the friendly team at Lillicrap Chilcott will be happy to answer any of your questions. See all available properties on our website or call us on 01872 273473 today.
