July events in Cornwall

Arts, culture, maritime celebrations and haute-cuisine are all but a small number of things a July in Cornwall has to offer. With warmer weather embracing the county it’s tempting to head straight to the nearest beach, but with a little local knowledge, you’ll find there are plenty of events going on away from the shoreline.

Festivals in Cornwall are a great way to learn about local customs, produce and traditions. If you’ve been on holiday to Cornwall before but have never visited any local shows or events, or even if you’re experiencing things with fresh eyes, why not get involved this July? With activities and entertainment all around, you can be sure there’ll be something just a stone’s throw from your cottage.
