What's On In Cornwall - Summer Holidays 2023
Cornwall reaches peak fun during the summer holidays! There is always so much going on that you can find something fun to do every day, and that's before you even start to explore the amazing beaches, watersports and coastline!
We all know the usual big hitters every summer, from Falmouth Week to Boardmasters, but we've rounded up the less well known events so you can plan some unique summer fun!

Sing Along The River, 3rd & 31st August
This outdoor event in Lostwithiel showcases the best of Cornwall’s community singing and choral groups and local Male Voice Choirs.

A festival of all things geeky at Heartlands! There will be plenty to entertain all ages throughout the bank holiday weekend-long event. The family-friendly events include cosplay, live performances, movie props, photo opportunities, access to lots of traders, and a variety of new and improved stuff from 2022.
