Thornbury’s Carnival is a much-loved community event and one of the social highlights of Thornbury’s summer calendar, regularly attracting over 8,000 visitors.

Thornbury Carnival

The Carnival is organised and delivered by a small committee of volunteers working on a not-for-profit basis, with any surplus donated to local charities and support groups.

  • 11am* Parade along Castle Street and High Street
  • 12 noon Access to Mundy Fields (with pre-purchased ticket or pay on the gate)
  • 12.15pm* Main stage entertainment begins
  • 6.30pm* Headline act
  • 8pm*: Mundy Field entertainment ends

*Times are approximate

The Parade usually features marching bands, adult and child walking/dancing groups, American cars, vintage cars, military vehicles, tractors and for the last two years we’ve had a traction engine and horses.

Once the Parade is over, the Carnival moves to Mundy Fields where activities run throughout the afternoon and early evening including a main stage, an arena, a fun fair, Weston donkeys, free children’s activities, a variety of stalls, a selection of food traders and two fully licenced bars. There really is something for all the family!

Each year the Carnival has a different theme and visitors are encouraged to participate and dress accordingly.

Please note, entertainments are subject to change and a full programme will be published on the website or facebook page during the week prior to the Carnival.
