Ryde Carnival

Ryde Carnival is an all-inclusive and joyous parade of colour and light marking the end of summer.

We put on three Carnivals each summer from late August into early September. The first Carnival is the afternoon Children’s Carnival, then we have the early evening Main Carnival and finally the late evening Illuminated Carnival, which is the last carnival to be held each year on the Isle of Wight.

All our carnivals are run by volunteers and are FREE to attend. We raise money all year round to put these carnivals on, but if everyone watching put just £1 into a collection bucket we would have all the funding required for the following year.
