St Keverne is a civil parish and village on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom.

The Cornish Rebellion of 1497 started in St Keverne. The leader of the rebellion Michael An Gof (the "smith" in Cornish) was a blacksmith from St Keverne and is commemorated by a statue in the village. Before his execution, An Gof said that he should have "a name perpetual and a fame permanent and immortal". In 1997 a 500th anniversary march celebrating the An Gof uprising, (Keskerdh Kernow 500) was held, which retraced the route of the original march from St Keverne, via Guildford to London.
