Thought to be one of the longest running events of its kind, Mevagissey Feast Week commemorates the ancient Feast of St Peter and has done in a variety of ways since 1754.

Evolving over the years from a religious Feast Day celebrating its patron saint with hymns, procession and children’s tea to today’s week long extravaganza, the lively atmosphere and eclectic mix of entertainment and activities promises to please every type of visitor to the diminutive south Cornish village.

Then there’s music and dance aplenty courtesy of bands, choirs, and flora and ceilidh dances, while a jam-packed schedule including children’s entertainment, competitions, parades, boat and raft races, and fete culminates in a show-stopping carnival through Mevagissey’s winding streets and a fantastic fireworks finale.
