19th - 29th March 2020
Falmouth Spring Festival
A festival to celebrate Falmouth's beautiful open and green spaces.
As profiled on the BBC’s Great British Garden Revival programme, this wonderful early season festival brings together the Falmouth community like no other. The festival brings an explosion of colour, life and activity to the town.
This is a vibrant, community-orientated event and the first main festival of the year and a must see in Falmouth!
The 2020 schedule is still being worked upon, but expect to see the following:
PAINT THE TOWN YELLOW DAY
The town becomes ablaze with yellow in preparation for the Festival as local schoolchildren hand out thousands of daffodils and decorations to shops and passers-by.
