Festivals, Feast Weeks, Carnivals and Special Days take place all the year round in Cornwall and showcase the depth and diversity of Cornish Culture. Many events such as Padstow’s Obby Oss, Helston’s Flora Day and Mazey Day in Penzance have their roots in pagan traditions whilst others such as Newquay’s Boardmasters celebrate more recent trends such as surfing. The creativity and imagination required to make these events possible underlines what fun loving people the Cornish are!
