Welcome to the home ofColchester Carnival 2016

Colchester Carnival will return to Colchester town centre between 1pm and 3pm on Saturday 16th July 2016. We have accepted over 40 entries into this year's event. Colchester Carnival is organised by Colchester Round Table and Colchester Ladies Circle.

As always, we want this year’s carnival to be as vibrant as possible with the community at the heart of it.

This year's Colchester Carnival theme is "Fairy tales, myths and legends". We want everyone to have a chance to really get involved. That’s what we’re aiming to achieve, a real community-centred event.

This website will be the main window into our activities regarding the 2016 Carnival and will be regularly updated for news and event information. Also, why not ‘like’ us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for additional updates.

Thank you to John Worland for creating the official Colchester Carnival video this year.
