All carnivals are free to attend – but remember to get there early to secure yourself a good vantage point and somewhere to park your car.

During the carnivals there are various road closures and diversions around the towns to allow the carnival processions to take place. Head over to and follow @islandecho on Twitter for the latest information.

In addition to the carnivals themselves, the funfair will once again be returning to selected towns on the Island. Details are included below.


Please note that carnivals are subject to change due to last minute cancellations due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances. The table above is a guide and we recommend that you check the carnivals website for any updates. Island Echo can not be held responsible for any inaccuracies.
