Historically, St Austell had its own week of feasten activities surrounding the celebration of the Feast of Saint Austol (traditionally celebrated in St Austell on the Thursday of Whitsun) the last of which took place in 1946. 

In 2012, the then Mayor Cllr. John Keast OBE, along with the town council, members of local businesses, schools, churches and community groups decided to rekindle this lost tradition in the town.
