  The 2019 World Pasty Championships - Eden Project
As the Eden Project is based in Cornwall, our World Pasty Championships celebrate the traditional Cornish pasty recipe, as well as some more unusual varieties. From the Americas to Australia, pasties derived from recipes passed down by Cornish emigrants over centuries are eaten and enjoyed by many millions of people.

We invite entries from around the world to our championships, and we set the table for both amateur and professional bakers to parade their wares. The championships are supported by the Cornish Pasty Association.

We’re inviting pasty makers across Cornwall, the UK and the world to enter the competition. This is an open event and every pasty entered will be judged, so we need to advise that there will be a limit on numbers.

5 March St Pirans day 2005St Piran's Day - Patron Saint of Cornwall
Cornwall’s patron saint, St Piran, is the patron saint of tinners from whom the county’s flag takes its name. Over the centuries many pilgrims have visited the site of St Piran's Oratory or Chapel in the towans at Perran Sands. On the nearest Sunday to his special day, March 5, hundreds of people come from all over Cornwall and beyond come to remember and honour him. St Piran’s Tide occurs surrounding the date March 5 and has evolved around St Piran’s Day to provide a week-long event of festivities taking place throughout Cornwall. A highlight of the week are colourful processions with music and dance though Bodmin and Truro on St Piran’s Day itself, and also a re-enactment of St Piran’s arrival in Cornwall on Perran Sands, Perranporth

You can see a round up of St Piran Day activities here

Trelawny 'shout' : The Cornwall Community Foundation (CCF) would love you to join in with a collective ‘shout’ at 9pm on March 5th, the national day of Cornwall (a shout being the term for Cornish pub singing). What better way to celebrate than to take part in a mass singing of the Cornish anthem ‘Trelawny’. Check if your local is involved!
