The Fal River Festival 2017

Join in the celebrations with The Fal River Festival 2017.


The 2017 festival will take place in Cornwall's most popular visitor destination from Friday, May 26th to Sunday, June 4th.

This fantastic 10 day festival is a not-for-profit community festival which encompasses over 150 events varying from music & drama, the arts & heritage to gig racing, swimming, walking & lots more.

The festival was established in 2006 and will be running for its 12th year in 2017. It's a chance to embrace the places, people, history, culture, sport & industry that are connected by this very Cornish river.

With its diverse mix of events taking place at dozens of locations around the Fal River, the festival offers something for everyone and is the perfect opportunity to engage with life on the river and discover some of its fascinating history.

Each year more than 100,000 people attend a range of different events helping raise a whopping £75,000 for charity while enjoying 3,000 pints of ale, lager and cider!
