Culture & Creativity

The Roseland Festival

The Roseland Festival is a celebration of culture, arts, music, literature, history & heritage, food & drink and the great outdoors. This year the festival will be held between the 22nd April and the 5th May on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula – more information and the programme can be found below.

Formed in 2006, The Roseland Festival aims to bring a high-quality festival to the Roseland, featuring cultural events to appeal to both residents and visitors in an area that has a lot to offer. In addition to the festival, two weeks of events in local halls and pubs are put on for the community, making the festival a true celebration of Cornish togetherness.

We have added the quick reference highlights below, and included the 2023 programme of events for you to download or look through.
