Join in the Carnival Parade

Thornbury Carnival

As usual the day will start with the Parade through the High Street at 10.30.

We will provide the bands and entertainment but are looking for colourful and imaginative entries to the Parade to kick the day off in style.

The theme is entirely optional and it’s up to you to interpret this.

You can be a walking group... What about a Carnival Float? Or if you have a classic car, military vehicle or just about anything in between, come along and enjoy the day.

Register via the Parade Entry Form or for more details, contact our Parade Manager at:
