Mevagissey Feast Week 2019
Sunday June 23, 2019 @10:00 am - Saturday June 29, 2019 @
Organised by Mevagissey Feast Week
Mevagissey Feast week is set to be bigger and better than ever.
Held in Mevagissey and originally in December, feast day as it was known took the shape of a religious festival where everyone would celebrate with children’s sports, feast tea and a procession with a band and singing. A very special occasion, folks would be wearing their ‘Sunday Best’. However this coincided with a busy fishing period and so in 1752 Mevagissey adopted St Peter as its patron saint and has held a festival to celebrate this date 29th June ever since. In 1960 Mevagissey Feast week began.
Now a week long event and not to be missed with events happening through out the week including; 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 grand finale firework display.
