What’s On

We are getting closer by the day to Golowan Festival 2022 and planning is well underway for the midsummer celebrations to be back in full glory this year.

As always there will be something for everyone to enjoy with events and activities throughout the week of the festival starting on Friday 17th June and culminating on the ‘Mazey’ weekend with Mazey Day on Saturday 25th June and Quay Fair Day Sunday 26th June.

We will be publishing and distributing the Golowan programme closer to the festival. In the meantime look out for updates on our social media. Golowan Festival Official Page | Facebook

We hope you are all looking forward to seeing the bright parades, dancing the Serpent Dance to the sound of the Golowan Band and being merry in the streets of Penzance again. We certainly are! Keep an eye out for Golowan workshops in the lead up to the festival where you can participate in all sorts of activities like costume, mask and headdress making – get dressed up for the festival. Model boat making – to sail at the boating pool event on Quay Fair Day. Traditional Cornish Dance – including all you need to know to join the infamous ‘Serpent Dance’ An Eye An Eye! Banner making, circus skills, photography town trail and more to get everyone into the Golowan summer spirit.
