Get ready... it's the tenth anniversary of the Porthleven Food & Music Festival! This year, the biggest ever, the special theme will be: Anti Plastic. Fantastic!

Taking place on the beautiful coast of south Cornwall, the festival is commited to helping keep our coastlines clear of nasty plastic. The festival has pledged to scrap all plastic whererever possible and is inviting you all to do the same at the festival and when you get home.

The annual event in the picturesque little harbour town of Porthleven attracts over 30,000 visitors. No wonder it’s popular: a weekend in the middle of spring filled with Cornish food, beer and bands… what’s not to like?

Marquees on the quayside will be packed full of tasty treats from over 150 exhibitors. Last year’s included Cornish chocolatiers Chocolarder, Cornish Meadow Preserves, The Cornish Black Bee Company, and Skinners Brewery with their ever-so-local Porthleven pale ale, as well as delicious street food to enjoy while you browse. The chef’s theatre will host cookery demonstrations from the best local and international chefs, and you might even spot the odd celebrity too.

Daytime and evening live music will range from classical to country and rock to reggae with lots of local bands and some international acts. Porthleven even has its very own fringe festival featuring literary events, arts and family entertainment.

Entry to the main food festival is free, but tickets are required for the After Dark parties. The music line-up can be found on the Porthleven Food Festival website, as can helpful advice on transport and places to stay. Check back in January for a complete list of the 2018 exhibitors and the full line-up of chefs.

So come on down to Porthleven this April, fill your shopping bags with Cornish food, eat yourself silly, drink until you are merry, and then boogie the night away.
