Around St Ives

Overview

From the ancient ‘hurling the silver ball’ celebrations on Feast Day to the more recently established Beer & Cider Festival, St Ives has a diverse year-round schedule of planned events to suit everyone. From the traditional pageantry of May Day to the fancy-dress, surfing bonanza Swellboard Shootout, St Ives is a town that knows how to have fun.

Lifeboat Day; an annual fundraising fiesta that celebrates the town’s close relationship with the sea. For the more cerebral, the St Ives Literature Festival may inspire; or if you are more the athletic type, why not enter our annual biathlon? Each year the St Ives September Festival attracts an array of internationally recognised artists from the world of music, literature, theatre and poetry. The Food & Drink festival in May on Porthminster Beach is a culinary showcase attracting the region’s best restaurateurs and artisan traders for you to sample their mouthwatering produce.

Over recent years, St Ives Christmas and New Year’s celebrations have grown to become one of the most talked-about in Britain. With Mardi Gras-style dress-up, street drummers and midnight fireworks there is no better place to see out the ‘old’ and bring in the ‘new.’
