Golowan Festival

Golowan Festival

Penzance comes alive with electrifying aplomb during this year’s always-anticipated Golowan Festival, where a bevy of top entertainment awaits.

Running from 16th-25th June, the week-long Midsummer celebration draws crowds from far and wide keen to immerse themselves into the magnetic cultural extravaganza.

Taking the theme ‘The Never Ending Story’ this year’s event looks set to spark the imaginations of all visitors with a jam-packed programme of things to see and do, including a brand new addition to proceedings: Golowan Community Workshops at The Exchange and Penlee House Gallery and Museum.

From art exhibitions to concerts, fashion shows, songwriters night, acoustic and open mic nights, musical and dance performances, and even a ‘photo safari’ around Penzance – Golowan is chock with ways to immerse yourself into the free-spirited party mood.

One of the week’s highlights is the fabulously free fireworks display on the Friday evening, while a smattering of marquees, gazebos and other local venues from pubs to community halls will be hosting a variety of other not-to-be-missed events such as a traditional Cornish shout!

The renowned festival culminates in a weekend finale comprising Mazey and Quay Fair Days (24th and 25th) with a range of processions, parades, market stalls, pop-ups, street entertainment, food, children’s activities and fairground along the specially decorated promenade and harbourside.
