April Events in Cornwall
April is a busy month in Cornwall, the weather is usually pretty good (as it is today). The attractions open up and the coast becomes even more inviting. Barely a month goes by when we are not celebrating our great cuisine, and this month is no different! Here are three events you can enjoy in April in Cornwall.
Falmouth Folk and Cider Fayre 14-17 April
Falmouth is a great place that I love to visit, but this festival sounds great. Come to the festival and find over 70 ciders to try! Some great folk talent including FolkLaw, Alex Hart, Jonah's Lift, The Other Band and Sarah McQuaid. As well as folk and cider there are of course food stalls, arts and crafts and local fare.
Portleven Food Festival 21-23 April
Near Helston, this foodie event is quite a draw. There are over 90 stalls of food and craft all along the harbour with great music to complement. All ending in dazzling fireworks! Michelin star chefs will be doing demonstrations, there’s plenty to inspire and a real buzz in a gorgeous location.
Trevithick Day 29 April
One of Cornwall’s claims to fame is the great inventor Richard Trevithick a hero of the Industrial revolution. He created the first ever steam engine in 1801 in our little county and this is the day the Camborne comes alive to celebrate it. So what can you expect? The whole of the town host events with stalls, choirs, live music, theatre, kids entertainment and of course steam engines!
