Copper Coast Cornish Festival
The next Kernewek Lowender Copper Coast Cornish Festival will be held May 19-21 2017. This unique major cultural festival for South Australia has been held biennially in the three Copper Coast towns of Moonta, Wallaroo and Kadina since 1973, routinely attracting more than 40,000 people who gather to celebrate the region’s significant Cornish heritage.
In 2017 the festival has a fresh new all ages approach and increased support from the community. With a record amount of Associated Activites put on by the community this years festival is sure to please everyone. Hundreds will dress as Cornish Jacks and Jennies, thousands of Cornish pasties will be consumed and crowds will fill town squares for the spectacle that is the maypole and furry dancing.
Necks crane to view the Procession and Cavalcade of Cars & Motorcycles, and people travel thousands of miles to experience the Gathering of the Bards and the Dressing of the Graves.
