Harvest Fair & Carnival
Helston Harvest Fair is a weekend of fun celebrating the fruits of autumn. Traditionally held on the first weekend of September each year, the event is packed with fun activities and happenings.
Unfortunately cancelled for 2020, Harvest Fair will be back in September 2021.
On the Saturday there’s a Family Pet Show and a Family Fun Dog Show as well as a Grand Carnival with floats, walking entries and vintage vehicles. Participants and revellers process through the streets of Helston, entertaining the crowds as they go.
On Sunday a traditional Open Horticultural and Craft Show is held in the Old Cattle Market with prizes for categories including flowers, fruit and vegetables, home produce, handicrafts, wines, photography and floral art.
There are also specific categories for young people and groups. Judging takes place in the morning and there’s public viewing of the entries during the afternoon, prior to the presentation of prizes.
