Welcome from Event Organiser, Tina Evans

2023 marks the 16th year of the Padstow Christmas Festival and I’m thrilled that the event will live up to everyone’s expectations.

Arguably the best Christmas Festival in the southwest, we are privileged to showcase sensational food and drink producers and beautiful arts and crafts.

This year for the first time we are very excited to announce a partnership with “The Princes Trust”. This amazing charity supports young entrepreneurs beginning their journey in the tough world of business. It’s an honour to work with this amazing charity, especially during these challenging times.

We’ve not long to go now, so make sure you mark the date in your calendars! We look forward to welcoming you to Padstow, not only to the festival but to our wonderful town, which has something for everyone. It is the perfect, picturesque place to shop and sample our wonderful culinary delights.

Enjoy our community evening on the Friday night, with the arrival of Father Christmas, our wonderful Lantern Parade created by our local school children and a dramatic firework display to finish on the quayside.
