Taking part in Thornbury Carnival

Thornbury Carnival

Everyone is welcome to join in Thornbury Carnival!

Application forms for parade entrants and stallholders will soon be available. In the meantime, please feel free to download the information documents at the bottom of this page.

We are open to applicants from outside the area as well as from Thornbury itself, especially with novel stalls or exhibits.

You, your group or business can be involved in any combination of the following options:

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.

Set up a Stall

Thornbury Carnival

Carnival visitors appreciate the wide variety of stalls, which in previous years have included:

  • Craft, Hobbies and Exhibitions
  • Charities, Clubs and Societies, Schools and Churches
  • Children's activities and entertainment
  • Activity-based features
  • Vehicles: classic cars, commercials, military, tractors and steam!

Please note: refunds will only be given on the grounds of health and safety.

If you have any questions, please contact

Entertain the crowd

The Carnival is run by an independent team of volunteers, and surplus funds are used to finance future events.

Please will you enrol to help prepare the 2018 Carnival?

There are lots of ways to get involved, many of which do not require Committee work, and can be done in small groups and spread throughout the year.
