First staged in 2019, Carnival is back on 30 Saturday July 2022, kicking off with a street parade through the centre of Harrogate before heading to the Valley Gardens.

It’s free for everyone to attend and celebrate the diversity, colours, costumes, sounds and flavours from the four quarters of the world, right here in Harrogate. With global music and dance stages, themed food zones, art and craft workshops and street theatre, this family-friendly day is a true party in every sense of the word.

Think Rio in Rhododendrons, parade in the petunias, sounds in the sun colonnades, food in the flora and dancing in the dahlias, and you will begin to get a taste of what the day holds in store.

Relive the Carnival fun from 2019…

Harrogate went pre-historic with our ‘Saurus’ street theatre at the 2019 Carnival launch.
