Porthleven Food Festival
Event: Cancelled for 2021
The organisers of Porthleven Food Festival are devastated to announce that the event will be cancelled for the second year running.
The award-winning, free festival, which had already been moved from its usual April slot to the weekend of 2-4 July in 2021, owing to COVID-19, usually brings thousand of foodies to the harbourside in Porthleven.
The decision to cancel has been taken amidst the ongoing situation with the global COVID-19 pandemic.
With the event scheduled to take place less than two weeks after June 21, the current proposed Step 4 date for lifting all social distancing in the government’s roadmap out of lockdown, the Festival’s organisers feel it’s too risky to assume everything will be business as usual.
What's it all about?
The Festival is a three-day feast of food, drink and music held in and around the historic harbour of Porthleven. As a well-established event on the festival calendar, the Festival brings around 40,000 people together in and around the stunning harbour port of Porthleven with national and international chef's theatre, food stalls, street food, music day and night and entertainment for all.
