Celebrating St. Piran’s Festival 2024

Celebrating St. Piran’s Festival 2024: A Festive Affair Despite the Weather!

St. Piran’s Festival on the 2nd of March 2024!!

What an unforgettable day it was for the Cornish and Redruth community! We joined together to celebrate our heritage and culture in a joyful festival. Despite the weather giving us a few challenges, our spirits remained high as we were determined to enjoy this special day to the fullest.



Redruth’s streets came alive with a vibrant array of entertainment, workshops, and bustling market stalls showcasing a variety of delightful local products. From fresh bakes and food, to handmade crafts and gifts, there was something for everyone to enjoy and take home as a memento of the day. A huge thank you to everyone involved in organizing and participating in the event. It takes a community to make such a success, and the dedication and hard work of all those involved didn’t go unnoticed.


Our favourite St Piran’s moment was the amazing parade, bursting with joy and enthusiasm. Seeing everyone gather in their best Cornish outfits, waving flags and banners, warmed our hearts. It reminded us of the strong pride and togetherness in our Cornish community. Ending at Flowerpot Car Park, we hope everyone enjoyed the opening celebrations, the Trelawny Shout, the festival’s blessing, and all the entertainment.

As the day drew to a close, there was a sense of unity amongst the crowd. Despite the challenges posed by the weather, St. Piran’s Festival 2024 was a resounding success. We are now eagerly looking forward to future celebrations, including Murdoch Day in June and beyond.

In the end, it’s not just about the festivities themselves, but the sense of belonging they inspire. St. Piran’s Festival reminds us of Cornwall’s rich cultural heritage that we hold dear. Events like these serve as a testament to the strength and resilience of its people.

Here’s to many more celebrations to come!
