Porthleven is looking like it has stepped back to the swinging sixties as our annual Festival Shop Window competition celebrates the Summer of Love in line with this year’s Love Food Theme.
Thanks to all the shops who took part. The windows all look brilliant and the results are in!
1st – Pengelly’s – Magic hippy bus
2nd – Boots – Interactive photo booth
3rd – Ann’s Pasties – Peace, Love and Pasties
Highly commended – Lindy Lou, Atlantic Inn + Quayside Fish.
Hop over to our Facebook page for a gallery of some of the windows and details and pop down and see them this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Porthleven Food Festival cancelled for 2020

It is with heavy hearts that the organisers of Porthleven Food Festival must announce that our 2020 event, which was due to take place from 17-19 April, will be cancelled.

All ticketholders will be automatically refunded and all traders, acts, artists and speakers will be rebooked for the 2021 event.

The decision, which has not been taken lightly, has been made amidst the current situation with Coronavirus/ COVID-19 in the UK.

With less than five weeks to go any additional restrictions on the movement of people, or a nationwide ban on events being enacted in the coming weeks, would be financially catastrophic for our Festival. We therefore feel that we must cancel the event this year in order to guarantee its future survival.

The team has already put a great deal of time, resource and energy into organising and promoting this year’s event and this is not a decision we’ve made lightly.

We hope you understand and respect our difficult decision to act now, thus removing uncertainty, reducing the amount of outlay by our audiences, sponsors, traders, suppliers and partners and helping to secure the event in future years.
