What is St Piran’s Day?

Saint Piran’s day, also known as the Feast of Saint Piran, is held on March 5th and is the national day of Cornwall. Towns and villages across the county celebrate all things Cornish such as pasties, cider and putting clotted cream on top of jam.

Parades of locals and school children line the streets dressed in black, white and gold and sometimes even dress as badgers, foxes and bears.
