To the


Copper Coast Cornish Festival 

The Kernewek Lowender Copper Coast Cornish Festival was recently held on the Copper Coast between May 19 - 21 May 2017. The coastal towns of Wallaroo, Moonta and Kadina came alive during the festival welcoming 45,000 people to the region to celebrate the areas Cornish heritage .

In 2017 the festival had a fresh new all ages approach and increased support from the community. With a record amount of Associated Activites put on by the community the festival has something to please everyone. Hundreds  dressed as Cornish Jacks and Jennies, thousands of Cornish pasties were consumed and crowds filled streets for the spectacle that is the maypole and furry dancing.

The  Cavalcade of Cars & Motorcycles was again a festival highlight with over 500 vintage cars and motocycles travelling around the Copper Coast. Thousands travelled miles to experience the Gathering of the Bards and the Dressing of the Graves.
