When? 24 July 2022
Where? Wareham


It's Wareham Carnival’s 60th birthday on 24th July and the town is making huge plans for the build up to carnival day, with the grand carnival procession and all the fun events, along with stalls on the recreation ground following the parade. There will be a large number of our favourite groups taking part in the parade, with many new floats and groups. There will be plenty of music along with the carnival royalty helping to lead the parade. This year we are hoping for the biggest parade so far.

On the recreation ground after the parade there will be:

o Entertainment in the rink.
o A variety of stalls and static displays.
o Music, refreshments and food outlets.
o And much, much more!

Full details of the events, timetable of events and competitions can be found on the Wareham Carnival website:

Our Scarecrow competition starts in July with scarecrows around the town, this helps set the scene for the carnival in the following week.
