Mevagissey can be a fantastic sun haven in June. The village is just getting in full swing, the fishermen are getting some of the best seasons catches, and the little cafes, bistros and wonderful restaurants are totally refreshed!
Mevagissey Feast Week! June, 2017
You can see the fishing boat race from the front 180° view balcony, and what a birds eye view because you can’t see this from the harbour.
From the 25th of June to the 1st of July is Mevagissey Feast Week, The weeklong event features exhibitions, demonstrations, live music and lots of fish dishes to eat. Along with choirs and bands, flora dances, children’s entertainment and competitions, plus colourful parades, boat and raft races, a fete and culminating in a huge firework display on the last night. From early afternoon every day there is a programme of events you can take part in.
There’s crab catching on the harbour, a pavement artist competition and a children’s tea for the kids, you can watch fishing boat races on the water, dance along the street… endless fun, fish and music. Usually there is a charity fish auction with an amazing selection of Mevagissey caught fish!
