St Agnes

The St. Agnes Carnival tradition dates back well over a hundred years, to the time when the village streets would have been lined with miners and fishermen, bal-maidens and fishwives.

Today the St Agnes Carnival is the highlight of the year not only for the people of St Agnes parish but also for holiday-makers, many of whom even book their holidays to coincide with that magic first week in August.

What makes St Agnes Carnival such fun? Well you won't see expensive corporate floats or elaborate frozen tableaux. You will see lots of fancy dress, local bands and people of all ages having a great time! Clever floats, great ingenuity, even dance routines, all led by the famous Giant Bolster…

If you are a visitor then it's easy - pick up a leaflet and support any or all of the events you choose. There's something for everybody. All the family will have a great time and you'll get a taste of the real Cornwall.
