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.
