What events are planned for the Bath Carnival?

The Bath Carnival prepared several great events to make this day special: the party in the park, the carnival procession and the after party at Komedia.


Party at Sydney Gardens

In addition to the street performances, the annual party returns to Sydney Gardens from 10am to 10pm. For the occasion, you can access a range of free, fun festival-themed activities for adults, children and families.

The festival will welcome numerous artists and offer a diverse musical program. You'll also be able to enjoy a selection of delicious food and drink from independant traders' stalls. 

Children are not forgotten! The totally awesome Super Pirates are organising an action-packed play area with giant inflatables, messy games, strolling and group games.

Green route: hop off at stop E - Great Pulteney Street/Holburne Museum or at stop F - Beckford Road


Carnival Procession

The Carnival procession will start at Bath Recreation Ground at 3pm and make its way through the City until 5.30pm.

Each year over 1200 people perform along the procession route with hundreds of professional carnival performers joining forces with local schools, clubs and community groups to create a huge collaborative performance that takes over the entire city centre.

Alongside hundreds of drummers and dancers, for this 10th anniversary, you will see giant puppets, eco-sound systems, wonderful school and community group performances, professional carnival costumes and pedal-powered structures.

The organisers are opening up their enormous collection of costumes to the public. So you can hire your own costume and get dressed up on Carnival day. The funds raised from the hire costs will help them maintain their stock, store them safely throughout the year and organise more community workshops so they can keep growing their collection.
