Porthleven Food Festival: A 3-day feast of food, music and fun.
Friday 26 – Sunday 28th April 2019
Porthleven Food Festival is an annual celebration of food and drink with lots of music and family fun.There’s no entrance fee and the daytime activities are mostly free with tickets only needed for the evening Shipyard Sessions.
TOP TIP: Visit on Sunday. There’s still a full programme of music, chefs and family events and you can avoid the Saturday crowds.
Whether you want to watch a Michelin-starred chef cook up a storm or boogie to the bands on the Lime Kiln Stage there’s loads to do by day. And with around 100 food stalls dotted around the harbour, you’ll be spoilt for choice on eats.
Over on the Moors Field you’ll find plenty to keep the kids entertained with rides, circus skills, craft workshops and tons more family-friendly fun. Drop in for ten minutes or stay all day – there’s lots of free entertainment.
Keep an eye out in the harbour for a visiting mermaid…
Stay in town for the evening Shipyard Sessions. This year Mad Dog McRea will open the event on Friday evening, supported by The Roustabouts. Saturday is a tribute to Motown featuring some of Cornwall’s finest soul musicians and Sunday features an all-Porthleven line-up including Rosie Crow, Half Kut and Go Go Skank.
TOP TIP: Take it easy and stay over on the Festival camping fields. Bring your own tent or motorhome or hire an amazing Shire Hut or pre-erected Bell Tent.
Kids are welcome at the evening music events but must be accompanied by an adult. Under 12s go free and 12-16 year-olds are half price.
