March is the beginning of Spring, but it hasn’t got off to the warmest of starts. But we are getting closer to Summer so it’s all going to be bright from here on in.
Once the ‘Beast from the East’ has subsided, we’re sure the yellow daffodils will return to brighten the Cornish fields. With St Pirans Day very soon there’s lots to look forward to in March.
Take a look at the up and coming events this March in Cornwall…
Cornish Pasty Week, until 3rd
With all this snow talk we can forgive you for not knowing that it has been the first ever Cornish Pasty Week! With lots of events happening across the Duchy we hope you’ve been tucking into a pasty or two…
World Pasty Championships, 3rd
As the finale to Cornish Pasty Week, the Eden Project are again hosting the World Pasty Champs as close to St Pirans Day as they can.
The champs celebrate everything from the traditional recipes to the more unusual flavours and home made creations. You’ll find representatives from across the world trying to win the title of Best Amateur and Best Professional!
If you’ve got a locals pass then you can head along for free, be ready to taste lots of wonderful pasties!
Cornwall Ukulele Festival, 3rd
With over 200 people gathering at Heartlands last year, this year will be the third festival of its kind. With workshops, open mic slots, live music and jams it’s a great event to head along to for beginners or people looking to try something new. Tickets are £3 and free for under 12’s.
St Pirans Day, 5th
St Pirans Day is the most important event of the month. With events in Perranporth, Looe, Falmouth, Bodmin and Truro to name a few make sure you don’t miss out.

The Cornish Arms Beer and Mussel Festival, 16th – 18th
The Cornish Arms in St Merryn, near Contantine and Padstow are hosting their beer and mussel weekend in a month renowned to be the best for mussels. There will be around 30 beers and ciders, some of Rick Steins Mussel dishes, lots of food 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. It’s free and families are most welcome.
Falmouth Spring Festival, 22nd – 2nd Apr
Marking the beginning of Spring this show in Falmouth welcomes exhibitors and trade stalls all ‘Spring’ inspired. There will be displays of daffs, flowers and cacti and photography displays. This colourful exhibition will really get you out of the grey, dark and cold winter, and help to celebrate the colours of Spring we have on the way.
With experts on hand to quiz and plants on sale to take home, it’s one to head to if you’re green fingered.
