Welcome to the Porthleven Food and Music Festival 2018.
Last year we drew around 30,000 of you lovely people to our small harbour town over three days of food, music, art, entertainment and fun with the ‘Under the Sea’ theme. And what a few days it was with blazing sunshine and merriment!
Now in our tenth year, we have a few small changes and additions to the festival to make it even better – follow our Facebook page for the latest updates.

Did you know that there has been a settlement here for thousands of years? Whether they grew up here or moved here to live, Porthleven’ers are proud of their history. The Porthleven Community Interest Company secured funds to develop a Town Trail providing much information about the history of the place.
