Kernewek Lowender - Copper Coast Cornish Festival

The 2015 Kernewek Lowender Copper Coast Cornish Festival will see 40,000 plus people from around the world will converge on the historic copper mining towns of Kadina, Moonta and Wallaroo on Yorke Peninsula.

Established in 1973, the Kernewek Lowender has grown to become the world's largest Cornish festival. Nowhere else can you experience authentic Cornish custom and fare such as Maypole and Furry Dancing, the big Cornish Pasty bake-off, the gathering of the Bards and the Dressing of the Graves events; some 15,000 Cornish pasties will again be consumed, swilled down with Swanky and Cousin Jenny Ginger Pop.

Other big drawcards are the Moonta Procession and Street Party, Kadina's Village Green Fair, and the Classic Cavalcade of Cars and Motorcycles with its 500 plus entries.

The 2015 program (released in November) will feature more than 70 events; check it out on the website.
