It really showcases the best of Cornish food, from the little guy to the brands we love. 40,000 people come every year to the 70 stands for a true taste of our fair county.


Nathan Outlaw, whose restaurant has been newly named the best in the UK by the Good Food Guide, will be making his 13th appearance. Expect delicious dishes and demonstrations from local business, chefs, mixologists and producers all on the three stages.

April Events 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 gorge…
