March is not quite summer, but it should be starting to warm up and feel a little more like Spring. As the flowers start to appear, and the sun becomes a little warmer it’s time to shed the winter mentality and head out and about in Cornwall. There’s a few more things happening now as we approach Easter so make the most of these Cornish Events.
Here are a few suggestions in our March What’s On in Cornwall blog.
St Pirans Day, 1st – 6th
This rightly should be the top of the list, and the most important event of the month. With events in Perranporth, Falmouth, Bodmin and Truro to name a few make sure you don’t miss out.
See our St Pirans Day blog for more information.
World Pasty Champs, 4th
One of our personal favourites the World Pasty Champs are held at The Eden Project every year, usually on or around St Pirans Day. What a great way to celebrate! Head along to see a fierce competition for the best traditional Cornish pasty, and see some more unusual flavour combinations too! You will see professional and amateur entries, why not enter your own family recipe. Theres lots to do at The Eden Project, with live music and the biomes open as usual.
The Cornish Arms Beer and Mussel Festival, 17th – 19th
The Cornish Arms in St Merryn, near Contantine and Padstow are hosting a beer and mussel weekend starting on Friday 17th March. There will be around 40 beers and ciders, some of Rick Steins Mussel dishes, cookery demos and live music to enjoy. They will also have a large screen showing the Six Nations (we’re happy to hear) and a charity pub quiz. Entry is free and families are welcome.
Captain Bligh – Myth, Man, Mutiny, from 17th
The exhibition at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth starts on the 17th March and runs throughout the year, so one to note down to visit this year. The history of Captain Bligh and the 200th anniversary of his death are explored in the story of the 3600 nautical miles travelled…

Falmouth Spring Flower Show, 18th & 19th
Marking the beginning of Spring this show at Princess Pavilion in Falmouth will welcome exhibitors and trade stalls. There will be displays of daffodils, shrubs and cacti as well as floral arrangements and photograph displays. This, no doubt, colourful exhibition will really get you out of the grey and dark winter, and celebrate the colours of Spring we have on the way.
There will be experts on hand to quiz, and plants on sale to take home with you. It’s one to head to if you’ve got green fingers.
Boscastle Walking Week, 25th – 31st
This is exactly what it sounds like. Join in with a mix of walks for all ages and abilities, and choose from a selection of scenery. From coast, to woodland, streams and even waterfalls these walks are arranged by local guides and will be great fun to explore the area around Boscastle. Each walk takes about 3 hours and is from £3-£5. Don’t forget your walking gear, and booking for all walks is essential.
