FREE ADMISSION TO VISITORS attending the family festival.
Expected Visitor Attendance: 15,000
Created as a one-day spectacular, Carnival is a bustling hub of events staged on the last Saturday in July. With global music and dance stages, themed food zones, a theatre of food, art and craft workshops, street theatre and a Carnival stage, this family-friendly day is a true party in every sense of the word.
First staged in 2019, the event is back again on Saturday 30th July 2022, kicking off with a large street parade throughout 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, in the centre of Harrogate.
Harrogate International Festivals team up with local artists, community groups, local food suppliers and street food from further afield to serve up a fantastic array of fayre from across the world. And the parade weaving its way through the town centre is a great opportunity to see the quality of independent and chain stores, restaurants and bars that make Harrogate a superb place to eat, drink and shop all year round.
Opening times for exhibitors:
Saturday: 11.30am - 6pm
