Porthleven Food Festival

Porthleven Food Festival, now in its eleventh year, is a well-established event on the festival calendar. The Festival brings around 40,000 people together in and around the stunning harbour port of Porthleven with national and international chef’s theatre, food stalls, street food, music day and night and entertainment for all.


St Ives Food and Drink Festival

The St Ives Food and Drink Festival takes place on the iconic Porthminster Beach and 2019 saw visitor numbers swelling to around 25,000. 2020 promises even more culinary experts, attractions and a wide variety of local beverages and food. In 2020 the festival runs from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th May and includes the evening music sessions on all three nights.


Truro Food Festival

The city-wide celebration of Cornish food and drink is centred around Lemon Quay with pop-up events and activities taking place across the city. The inaugural event welcomed 35,000 visitors across the three days who enjoyed chef’s demos, a local produce market, gourmet street food stalls, a local restaurant trail, workshops and live entertainment showcasing the best in local talent.


Rock Oyster Festival

Set in the grounds of Dinham House, overlooking the stunning Camel Estuary, Rock Oyster Festival returns to its rightful home for a weekend of foodie heaven, live music and tons of kids entertainment. We’ll be returning to our roots this year, celebrating local food and produce with pop-up restaurants, chef demos and banquet feasts to a backdrop of open air stages and acoustic sets.


It was evident in everything I experienced that the focus and priority for ILOW was the best conditions, a fantastic time and great value for everyone involved. Please invite me again!
