NEW FOR 2022 – A CHILDREN’S CARNIVAL DAY

During last summer’s uncertainty about whether we would be able to hold any Carnivals, we decided to put on a Week of Events instead as it presented a far more controllable environment for these unusual times. With the help of Shademakers, New Carnival Company, Raw Samba, Huxley the Magician and many more we put on a number of fun and engaging activities for all the family.

This event was so well received that we have decided to include the best of last year’s events, which will take place in nearby locations like Minghella’s Square and the Town Square and also have a Children’s Parade through the High Street and rename it The Children’s Carnival Day.

There will be dance performances which you can join in, magic shows and competitions going on during the day and culminating in the Children’s Carnival Parade.

Saturday 27th August 2022  11am-3pm

Join us for our brand new Ryde Children’s Carnival Day on Saturday 27 August from 11 am to 3pm.
