There is an exciting line-up of events planned for St Piran’s Day 2022, on Saturday 5th March.
Parade, speeches & songs
The St Piran’s Day parade will begin at 13.00, leaving from Waterfall Gardens on St George’s Road, heading towards the War Memorial on Boscawen Street, before culminating at High Cross for speeches and songs.
Truro businesses are being encouraged by Truro BID to take part in a St Piran’s themed window competition. The competition will be judged on the morning of St Piran’s Day by Mayor of Truro, Cllr Steven Webb, and Truro’s Town Crier, Lionel Knight.
The winner will be announced during the speeches at High Cross following the parade, and the winner will be awarded a trophy to display in their shop window until the end of March.
Truro Farmers Market
Truro Farmers Market will be on Lemon Quay from 09.00 – 16.00, celebrating all things Cornish.
With the very best local traders, the market boasts a wealth of Cornish produce and craft.
To add to the celebrations, there will also be live music on the Quay throughout the day.
There will be three workshops running throughout the day for you all to get involved in.
These include dance workshops, storytelling, and a sash making session.
More details to follow.
The popular St Piran’s Day activity packs are back, designed by Cornish artist Molly Biscoe.
The packs will be given to children in Truro primary schools, but you can also collect them for free from Truro Community Library from Monday 28th February.

Wherever you may be at 21.00 on Saturday 5th March, make sure to join in with the Trelawny Shout.
