Would you like to be part of Carnival?

We are looking for people from across the Harrogate District to take part and help bring the parade to life as flag wavers on Saturday 30 July (think of this as the Olympic torch of the Carnival). Whether you’re 2 or 102, alone or in a group we’d love to have you.

Let us know you’ll like to be a flag waver by filling out our short form and we’ll be in touch soon with more information.

What will I need to do?

You don’t have to be an expert flag waver, just enthusiastic and excited to be part of the parade. You’ll be part of a group so you won’t be alone. Get creative and dress up for the occasion – there’s only one carnival!

When and where?

You’ll be needed from 10am to 12pm on Saturday 30 July 2022, and be required to meet at Wesley Chapel, 28 Oxford St, Harrogate HG1 1PP at 10am. Please note there is no parking at Wesley Chapel, but plenty of on street parking and car parks in Harrogate.

The Carnival parade will go through the centre of Harrogate before heading to Valley Gardens. You can view the route here.

Can children join in?

Absolutely! Everyone is welcome to be a flag waver. All we ask is that children under 16 years old are accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times, including during the parade.
