Mevagissey Feast Week (25th June - 1st July)

Mevagissey South Cornwall 01726 842920
Originally this was purely a religious festival where every denomination would have a 'Feast Day' with children's sports, feast tea and a procession with a brand and hymn singing, this was a very special occasion and everyone would be wearing their 'Sunday Best'. There were a lot more churches or chapels here then and this would have taken up a whole week but when the gradual demise of the chapels feast week slowly began to die out, but with the formation of the Feast Week Committee in the 1960's the festival was rejuvenated and has been evolved into a week long celebration with a whole host of events for everyone.

Fish Feast day features exhibitions, demonstrations, live music and lots of fish dishes to eat. Other events include choirs and bands, flora dances, children's entertainment and competitions, plus colourful parades, boat and raft races a fete and a huge firework display.

This wonderful festival, thought to be the longest surviving in the County, owes its success to the blend of traditional and new events which brings the whole community together and welcomes hundreds of visitors to share in its unique celebrations.
