Isle of Wight Carnival Dates for 2024

The Island is always brimming with excitement when a carnival is taking place and this year will see the return of many favourites. Carnival season is not only popular for Islanders, but for visitors too! Below is a list of Isle of Wight carnivals due to take place in 2024.

This list as a guide only, so do please check with the carnival you are wishing to attend prior to the procession taking place. Why not check Facebook, to see if a carnival has a dedicated page, which will announce up to date information.

Information last updated on Sunday 14th January 2024 with many thanks to Newport Carnival and Community Events Association.
