Who Are We?

From a field by the sea to four days of fun… it has sure been a ride! But the journey’s not over yet. Come and be part of our future…

2002Where it all started

One man’s dream to run a one-day outreach to the surf and skate community of Woolacombe, North Devon.

2003Triple the fun!

One day quickly becomes three as Creation Fest grows in size.

2009Moving and expanding

Creation Fest moves to the Royal Cornwall Events Centre, Wadebridge and is extended to a week-long festival.

2014A hero of the faith passes on

Festival founder Phil Pechonis passes away. His legacy, that the gospel should be freely shared, freely heard, free for all, lives on.

2014North of the border

The first Creation Fest Scotland event takes place in Edinburgh.

2017Going deeper

Creation Fest moves its office and accommodation base to Wadebridge, to be nearer the festival site and to invest further into year-round ministry within the local community and local churches.

2018Starting 'em young

Creation Fest partners with South West Youth Ministries to start Glow, a monthly youth gathering in Cornwall.

2019First birthday present

On its one-year anniversary, Glow launches north of the border into Plymouth.

2020On Air

Unable to meet together in 2020, we produced Creation Fest On Air, six uplifting episodes of music, teaching and interviews with rugby start Billy Vunipola and astronaut Charlie Duke

2021The Big Weekend

One of the first post-Covid events to take place, we couldn’t have been happier to be back in a field in Cornwall, praising Jesus at our new outdoor stage

2022 and beyondBe part of the future

Join us at the next Creation Fest event and be part of the story….


I look back at the early days and I’m in awe of all the Lord has done! I’m most touched by the stories I hear of lives transformed by God’s saving grace.  I’ve learned not to limit God, and look forward to all He will do in years to come.

Brian Brodersen, Festival Director
