The original Newquay celebration day has now extended to a week long festival, sometimes slightly longer, with numerous community events throughout Newquay and district. The organising committee are pleased to welcome all those who are wishing to participate along with schools, businesses and organisations.
Please have a look through our website and also on our social media to see what activities and events you may wish to join in with. If you have another idea about ways of celebrating life in Cornwall, please talk to one of our organising committee about how it might be incorporated into next year’s Festival.  We’ll be pleased to hear from you!
