Guldize is the harvest festival of the Cornish people. Guldize is Cornish language for "The feast of ricks". The festival itself was held at the end of the wheat harvest and took the form of a vast feast usually around the time of the Autumn equinox.
Since 2008 a revived Guldize celebration has been held in Penzance and since 2010 in several other locations across Cornwall.
