Things to Do in and Around Padstow in September and October 2019

As we say goodbye to the summer months and the nights draw in, you might think that Padstow and the surrounding area goes quiet. Far from it. We love it down here in the autumn months as the mood changes, the restaurants get a little quieter, and a little peace returns to the busy town and surrounding coastal areas.

But there’s still plenty of fun things to do! Staying in Padstow in September and October is actually favoured by many, especially those without school-age children who have more flexibility with when they take a break.

Thinking of coming to Padstow in September and October? Here’s what’s on…


The International Mining and Pasty Festival – 7th September 2019

Fancy seeing a HUGE pasty created by local people with local ingredients? That’s exactly how this event starts. It’s then sent to local Prima bakeries and then eaten at the minors statue at 4pm.

There’s high-quality Cornish food and drink as well as craft stalls throughout Fore Street, Market Strand and Market Hall on Saturday 7th September 2019 from 10am – 5pm.

Sunset Supper at the Atlantic Coast Express – 10thand 24th September 2019

Arrive by foot, boat, or horse! This unique experience brings talented local chefs, culinary delights, and stunning views as the sun sets over the Camel Estuary.

Bring a blanket and a bottle of something and come together to enjoy and wonderful experience.

Newquay FishFest - 13th – 15th September 2019

We’re very much about the fish dish down here in Padstow and neighbouring Newquay, famed for its surfing, is the same. Enjoy a packed weekend of filleting, prep, and cooking demos followed by live music and local ales and fine wines.

A great atmosphere, cooking smells, food, beers, wines and music await.

St Ives September Festival – 14th – 28th September 2019

In nearby St Ives there’s a festival that’s been going since 1977! The September Festival lasts a week long and encompasses so much of the great life down here on the Cornish coast.

From poetry, art, live music, exhibitions, comedy, walks theatre and more, this is well worth a trip to visit.

Looe Live! – 20th – 22nd September 2019

The town closes and the arts and music come out. This traditional town takeover event gives you great music and the chance to fill up on local food and drink whilst dancing the day (and night) away on the sea front.

There’s also a full programme of activities and workshops across the town you can get involved in.

Wadebridge BikeLights – 12th October 2019

Bikelights is a wonderful idea and takes place in Wadebridge each year. The 500-strong illuminated bicycle procession cycles through the streets and over the bridges of Wadebridge on 12th October as the sun goes down.

Everyone from local artists, schools and families decorate their bikes (and also scooters, pushchairs and walkers) to the theme of the year and cycle to the finish line for a big celebration with outdoor music, food, cinema and bike-related fun.
