The festival has proudly retained its original constitutional aim which was to revive the traditions of the Cornish heritage of the Northern Yorke Peninsula and to co-ordinate all the functions of the Cornish Festival.

Today, over 30,000 people flock to the Northern Yorke Peninsular to attend this cultural festival which is renowned for its many free events, street processions, church services and art and craft displays. Many visitors are particularly proud of their Cornish ancestry and cultural and historical aspects of the festival are very popular.
