Family Fun since 1889
The Isle of Wight is carnival crazy! With well over 20 different public events each summer and several more throughout the year, hundreds of locals and groups from further afield gather to entertain thousands of residents and visitors alike.
With 4 significant public events of our own, each year we aim to make our shows bigger, brighter and better than those that have gone before! Our unique Carnival Development Fund helps local groups participate by supporting them with the cost of costumes, materials etc.
All Sandown Carnival events are FREE to attend, staffed by a dedicated team of volunteers who fundraise throughout the year. Many people congratulate us on being the Island’s friendliest carnival!
