Obby Oss Festival

Welcome to The Padstow Obby Oss, a website dedicated to the famous May Day celebrations that have taken place in the Cornish fishing port for centuries. Take a look at photos or videos of the festival, listen to the traditional music and singing from the day, or read about the history of this ancient and unique celebration.

The Blue Ribbon obby oss leaves the Padstow Institute at 10am to begin its tour of Padstow. Next the Old obby oss appears outside the Golden Lion Inn at 11am. The two oss’s dance round the streets followed by their supporters and at 12pm the old oss has reached Prideaux Place, where it dances outside in front of a large crowd, before it heads back to the Golden Lion Inn. The Blue Ribbon oss visits Prideaux Place later on in the day.
