Island Echo has compiled a full guide to the Isle of Wight’s carnival and funfair locations for the 2019 season!
All carnivals are free to attend – but remember to get there early to secure yourself a good vantage point.
During the carnivals, there are various road closures and diversions around the towns to allow the carnival processions to take place. Head over to www.islandecho.co.uk/traffic-travel for the latest information.
