May Day Celebrations

  • Date(s): 05/05/2019
  • About:

    A fun parade in Ilfracombe to celebrate fertility and bring in the summer.

    Mustering from 10.45am in Wilder Road Car Park they parade through the High Street, Fore Street & St James Place ending at the Clapping Circle above Wildersmouth Beach where they dance the May Pole then 'Jack' will be stripped of his leafy coverings to welcome the Spirit of Summer.

    Everyone is welcome to join or watch the May Day parade – just turn up and if possible wear something green. For more details contact Events 4 Ilfracombe or the May Day team at maydayilfracombe@gmail.com
