15th to 24th June, 2018
The festival is one big spectacle and to say there is a lot to see and do is probably an understatement. You can hear traditional music played by the Golowan Band, and take part in the Serpent Dances when everyone joins hands and snakes through the streets.
There’s the not to be missed Penglaz, the Penzance ‘Obby ‘Oss that makes an appearance on St John’s Eve, the Quay Fair where you’ll find stalls selling local food, arts and crafts, the fun Mock Mayor Elections and the Summer Fire celebrations featuring a spectacular firework display!
One of the highlights of the festival is Mazey Day (23-24 June 2018) when the streets of Penzance are decorated with greenery and locals and school children dressed in colourful costumes process around the town carrying spectacular sculptures based on local themes including giant fish, ships and pirates.
