The Gunnislake FestivalGunnislake Category Outdoor Activities, For the Family, Entertainment
The festival began in 2001 as a celebration of the regeneration works carried out in the village and takes place from the Wednesday before the first Saturday in August.
Village walks, live bands, barbeques, film screenings and concerts all feature. Local pubs put on a variety of events each evening with the main festival day ending off the week in a community jamboree.
A fascinating village history exhibition always creates a lot of interest (with daytime guided walks being an additional feature). Watch the traditional flora dance and children’s fancy dress parade on the Saturday and afterwards enjoy specialist bands and Morris dancing displays. The local amateur dramatic society will add fun and further entertainment. There’s also a falconry display, along with a Punch and Judy show plus a variety of stalls, a children’s
corner and plenty of live music providing enjoyment for the whole family all afternoon.
Throughout the festival there is a art exhibition in the church hall where you can see work by local artists. A concert in St. Anne's Church is planned for the Friday
