Details listed below are for our 2024 festival

Every year we host an array of stalls under open-sided marquees along the South Quay. As people wander along the quay looking at the classic wooden boats they will be able to browse the stalls to look at Cornish wares and not forgetting the Sea, Salts and Sail merchandise.

We have always been very proud of the variety and quality of the music on offer at the festival. Read below to find out about some of the acts that appeared in the 2024 festival. As the festival is free to attend, we ask that people purchase a programme to find details of which acts are performing on which days, we cannot give this information out online.

Food and drink
We always offer superb food and drink for you to enjoy during your visit to the festival. Of course you can also enjoy a little something stronger – The Kiddlywink Bar sells wines, beers, lagers and ciders.

The bar is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
