Golowan Festival 2022

Today’s Golowan festival, created in 1991, brings back to life many of the traditions and practices recorded in Penzance during midsummer, adapting them to a safe and enjoyable festival for locals and visitors alike. Many of the familiar parts of the festival – crowds, fireworks, serpent dancing, market stalls, roaming bands, fireworks, the Mock Mayor and much more – have their roots in an ancient midsummer tradition celebrated vigorously up to the late 19th century.

2022's event goes "Back to the future"!

They look back with pride at 31 years of wonderful community celebrations and embrace the future in warm anticipation of all the joys to come! The Golowan Festival 2022 begins in the last 2 weeks of June culminating in the weekend spectacular parades & performances of Mazey Day & Quay Fair Day on Saturday 25th & 26th June

Date: 17 to 26 June 2022
