Golowan Festival Cottages
Penzance is home to many festivals including the Golowan Festival - a big spectacle with carnival style street parades, performing arts and the theatre. The celebrations are 10 days long, held from 23rd June (St John’s Eve) to 28th June (St Peter’s Eve) each year, attracting over 70,000 visitors.
The festival has grown to become a major arts and culture festival, centred around ‘Mazey Day’ when the streets are filled with market stalls and entertainers with national and international performers. It truly is a sight to behold, with some manmade figures being larger than the building around them.
