Copper Coast Council, Media Release, 27 April 2021

The biennial Cornish Festival will be held 17th to 23rd May and will welcome thousands of visitors to Australia’s Little Cornwall to celebrate our unique heritage and culture.
This past year has produced many new challenges in the lead up to the Festival, but the program is a tribute to the adaptability, creativity and hard work of the organising committee and our community that has resulted in minimal change to the usual program.

There is something for everyone including heritage, entertainment, Cornish food, Maypole and Furry Dancing, Classic Cavalcade of Cars and Motor Cycles, Art Prize, a street party, concerts, ceremonies, window displays, markets and parades.

Kadina, Moonta and Wallaroo come alive with the festivities and we encourage everyone to become involved by dressing in traditional Cornish costume and taking the opportunity to celebrate our Cornish heritage.

Program details are currently online, with the printed program available throughout the Copper Coast soon.
