A list of Cornish events and festivities to add to your calendar this Autumn!
There’s nothing like a good selection of Autumnal events and festivals to get you in the seasonal mood! If you love Autumn in all its Cornish glory, you definitely need to check these out:
7th – 8th October @ 7pm, Truro Piazza, 18+
A Bavarian celebration involving beer, food and music, all sponsored by Skinners Brewery. If you fancy a bit of a piss up to the sound of a brass oompah band, then get yo’ tickets here: https://mada.tickethive.co.uk/oktoberfest.
Kehelland Apple Day
8th October @ 11am – 5pm, Kehelland Trust Camborne
A more family-friendly event, the Kehelland Apple Day always reminds me of Autumn days as a child drinking fresh apple juice and making Halloween crafts! If you like the idea of cider tasting, delicious food, craft stalls, celtic music and all the apple juice you can drink, head to http://kehellandtrust.org.uk/apple-day-2016-8th-october-11am-until-5pm/ for the full event details!
Falmouth Oyster Festival
13th – 16th October @ 10am – 11pm, Event Square Falmouth
Please Note: You don’t have to love oysters to enjoy this event! In fact, I hate them – bleh. But don’t worry, no-one’s gonna force them on you; it’s a general celebration of quality seafood and cooking, so you can expect chef demonstrations, live music, sustainability talks and (of course) a wide variety of tasty seafood to eat (not just oysters!). Head here for more info: http://falmouthoysterfestival.co.uk/whatson/.
Falmouth Beer Festival
20th – 22nd October @ varying times, Princess Pavillions Falmouth
This post is fast becoming an advert for food an alcohol, but hey – that’s what being Cornish is all about, right? Admission to this tasting event is £10, and includes £6 worth of beer tokens (roughly 3 pints), a commemorative glass and programme – so get your beer geek on!

Truro City of Lights
