Previously known as the Port Eliot Lit Fest, the Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall, United Kingdom is for the true literati. The outdoor festival is different from most traditional literature festivals. Port Eliot is a laid-back event that you can take your kids to.

The annual Port Eliot Festival incorporates readings, dances, food, fashion and music to create a unique experience grounded in literary pleasure.

Implications - In a headline-based world where the general public has replaced the greater cultural element that surrounds such activities as poetry readings and literature with simplistic activities like Tweeting and video gaming, many members of society are longing for a return to cultural appreciation. With the resurgence of art shows and the rereleasing of classic novels, a more intellectual world is emerging.
