Cornish Festivals

Staying in the south west isn’t complete without attending a Cornwall festival. As the weather transitions from grey and grisly, to sumptuously warm and wonderful, Cornwall takes on a whole new vibe. Glistening seas and verdant countryside bursting into life, is exactly why people love to stay here and immerse themselves in Cornish life. And if it’s one thing we do well in Cornwall, it’s a summertime festival. In this case, we are talking about the Rock Oyster Festival, which you can explore more here. 

Rock Oyster Festival

A festival like no other

Taking place from Friday 28th July to Sunday 30th July, the Rock Oyster Festival near Wadebridge is a gastronomic extravaganza that delights seafood enthusiasts and music lovers alike. Nestled along the stunning Cornish coast, this vibrant event showcases the region’s finest oysters and other delectable seafood delicacies.

Indulge in freshly shucked oysters, tantalising fish dishes, and a wide array of culinary delights prepared by talented chefs, one of which will be our very own Head Chef Grant Goodson! Usually found serving our guests from a menu full to the brim of delicious, locally caught seafood, sharing platters and hearty home cooked meals, he has been invited to showcase his culinary talents on the stages of this year’s Rock Oyster extravaganza. 

This Cornish festival also boasts an impressive line-up of live music performances, creating a captivating ambiance for visitors to enjoy. Add to this artisanal crafts and family-friendly activities, and the Rock Oyster Festival offers a memorable experience that beautifully combines the best of Cornwall’s culinary and cultural offerings.

Regardless of the weather, for which we know Cornwall can be temperamental, Cornish festivals are always full to the brim with laughs, good music, amazing local food, drink, and a chance to see Cornwall like you’ve never seen her before. At Polzeath Beach House we encourage diving deep into Cornish culture, and you can do just that by attending the Rock Oyster Festival.
