Some kind of celebration has been held in Mevagissey for hundreds of years and was originally held in December. However this coincided with a busy fishing period and so in 1752 Mevagissey adopted St Peter as its patron saint and has held a festival to celebrate this date 29th June ever since. Feast Week which marks the feast of St Peter and the church celebrates in a traditional way with a tea, children's sport and an evening procession around the village with hymns, Bugle Silver Band and the Flora Dance.

Annually, usually around 29th June
2011 ? June 26 to July 2
2012 ? June 24 to June 30

All events free, except for concert.
