To the


Copper Coast Cornish Festival  


**13th - 19th May 2019**

The Kernewek Lowender Copper Coast Cornish Festival is held on the Copper Coast in regional South Australia in the coastal towns of Wallaroo, Moonta and Kadina.

The region is full of Cornish buzz during the festival week and the local community welcomes approx. 45,000 people who join in on the festivites and 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 had 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.

We look forward to celebrating with you in 2019!
