The Festival Committee


The Porthleven Food Festival couldn’t take place without the year-round support of dedicated volunteers. Porthleven Food Festival is a volunteer run ‘not for profit’ event that has direct economic impact on the local area in 2019 of over £2million. The festival strives on its relationship and impact on the local community and seeks to build on this for the future. Further details about the future of the event can be read here 

Why don’t you join us? You’ll be part of ‘one of the top food festivals in the UK’ and enjoy working with other passionate people to make the next Festival the best ever.

If you’re interested in participating on the Festival committee or have questions about what committee involvement entails, please contact one of this year’s Festival Chairs at,
