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.

Delicious eats at the Falmouth Folk and Cider festival

Live folk music in Falmouth with local cider

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.

Cornish singers at the Porthleven festival

Chef demonstrations at the Porthleven Food Festival


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.   

Steam engines at the Trevithick festival

Camborne celebrates Trevithick, the inventor of the steam train


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!
