Date Mon 13th May 2019 to Sun 19th May 2019
The next Kernewek Lowender will be held May 13th -19th 2019. (This event is held in May every second year)

This unique major cultural festival for South Australia has been held biennially in the three Copper Coast towns of Moonta, Wallaroo and Kadina since 1973, routinely attracting more than 40,000 people who gather to celebrate the region’s significant Cornish heritage.

With a new focus and drive to reignite the flame for the festival the committee is re planning and refreshing the festival.

The unique authentic program of fun and feasting includes hundreds dressing as Cornish Jacks and Jennies, thousands of Cornish pasties and crowds filling the town squares for the spectacle that is the maypole and furry dancing.

Necks crane to view the Procession and Cavalcade of Cars & Motorcycles, and people travel thousands of miles to experience the Gathering of the Bards and the Dressing of the Graves.
Dressing of the Graves, Kernewek Lowender
Date Tue 14th May 2019 to Wed 15th May 2019
The 2019 Dressing the Graves ceremonies will be held on Tuesday 14 May at Greens Plains West (10:30 am) and Wallaroo (1:30 pm) and on Wednesday 15 May at Kadina (10:30 am) and Moonta (1:30 pm). Nominations are open now and must be received by 30 September 2018. Dressing of the Graves is a project sponsored by the Cornish Association of South Australia in conjunction with Kernewek Lowender.



It is intended to remember and honour the lives of our ancestors. The ceremony is very poignant, and floral tributes, welcoming groups, choirs and preparation of citations for the grave sites are done by local school students. The involvement of our school children lends the ceremonies a truly community atmosphere.

Each ceremony is a unique experience and they have developed into the highly regarded Kernewek Lowender event that Dressing the Graves has become since its inception at the 2001 Festival. Two hundred and eighty one (281) pioneer ancestors have been honoured since that time. Dressing the Graves has created an ongoing valuable legacy for the Copper Coast, and family history research per se, and the program is well grounded to continue strongly into the future.
