Redruth is the venue for the first ever Cornish Pasty Festival this weekend.
The pasty has been the staple diet of working men across Cornwall and beyond since the 18th Century, and now the iconic self-contained, portable meal and its international ties will be celebrated.
The festival will also highlight Cornwall's international links with Mexico dating back to when migrating Cornish miners took their expertise and traditions, including the Cornish pasty, to new mining regions around the world.
The three-day event starts with Miners' Day on Friday. Pasty Day on Saturday will see pasty producers and Cornish produce suppliers turn the town centre into a lively street market.
On Sunday, former miners will be remembered at Basset Stamp House and St Euny church. The day commemorates thousands of Cornish men, women and children who laboured hard underground to meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving world.
