The Spirit of the Carnival award has returned this year! This award was created by local family-owned Island pubs, working together, to help support the traditional Island Carnivals.

The pubs are happily donating 1st, 2nd and 3rd place cash prizes for The Spirit of the Carnival.

“We are pleased to be able to support and encourage those participating in this much-loved tradition.”

To be eligible for one of the prizes you need to take part in both the Main Carnival and the Illuminated Carnival.

Check out the Carnival dates and fill out the Carnival Entry Form today!

After the Carnivals, why not pop into The Bargeman’s Rest, Newport; The Spyglass Inn, Ventnor; The Steamer Inn, Shanklin; or The Dairyman’s Daughter in the beautiful countryside of Arreton. You’ll be sure of great food, a wide selection of drinks and a warm welcome.

The perfect end to a great Carnival evening
