From Truro’s Oktober Fest to spooky Halloween tours and more; it’s all happening in Cornwall this October.
October in Cornwall has arrived and it’s definitely time to celebrate. The beach dog ban has lifted, the crowds have all but disappeared and a magical, autumnal hue is descending. What’s not to love? To add to the seasonal spirit, there are also lots of events and festivals taking place throughout the county. From Truro’s Oktober Fest to Halloween thrills and from deep sea voyages to immersive art; it’s all happening in Cornwall and we are joining in.
With a noticeably chillier edge to the breeze, there’s no better way to warm up than with delicious fodder. Fortunately, there are a number of festivals and events on throughout October to tantalise your taste buds. These include Truro’s very own answer to the world-famous German Oktoberfest. Intrigued? We are too. Head over and try out local delicacies and produce at one of the fantastic food festivals this month.
