Porthleven Food Festival


Porthleven Food & Music Festival, now in its eleventh year, is a well-established event on the festival calendar. The Festival brings around 40,000* people together in and around the stunning harbour port of Porthleven with national and international chef's theatre, food stalls, street food, music day and night and entertainment for all.

Do I need a ticket?

Entry to the main event is free and no ticket is required, but you will need a ticket for our After Dark Parties on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. Or choose our Weekend Gourmet ticket for full weekend access, including priority access to the Chef’s Theatre.

You can exchange your ticket for a wristband when you arrive either at our Info Stand on the Harbour Head during the day or at the Shipyard Stage Box Office in the evenings. See our map for locations. 

We have a camping field where you’ll need to purchase a ticket to gain entry to pitch up your own tent, park your campervan, motorhome or Winnebago. We also offer glamping in Bell Tent and Shire Huts.
