Mevagissey Feast Week - History

Some kind of celebration has been held in Mevagissey for hundreds of years and was originally held in December. However, this coincided with a busy fishing period, so in 1752 Mevagissey adopted St Peter as its Patron Saint and has held a Festival to celebrate this date, 29th June, ever since.

Originally, this was purely a religious festival - every denomination would have a ‘Feast Day’ with children’s sports, feast tea and a procession with a band and hymn singing. This was a very special occasion and everyone would be wearing their ‘Sunday Best’.

There were a lot more churches or chapels here then and this would have taken up a whole week but with the gradual demise of the Chapels,  Feast Week slowly began to  die out.

In the 1960s, the formation of the Feast Week Committee saw the rejuvenation of the Annual Festival and it has now evolved into a week long celebration with a whole host of events for everyone.

 

Fish Feast day features exhibitions, demonstrations, live music and lots of fish dishes to eat. Other events include choirs and bands, flora dances, children’s entertainment and competitions, plus colourful parades, boat and raft races a fete and a huge firework display.
