Trevithick Day History
Trevithick Day seeks to commemorate British inventor Richard Trevithick and his contributions. Trevithick was an early 19th century inventor and engineer from Cornwall. His most notable inventions were the high-powered steam engine and the railway steam locomotive.
Trevithick Day is a celebration of Trevithick’s link with Camborne as well as the town’s local industrial heritage. The day is celebrated with a festive atmosphere of costumes, music, and parades.
The first Trevithick Day took place in 1984 in the town of Camborne. It has since been observed annually on the last Saturday in April.
