Harpenden Carnival 2019

Date: 8th Jun 2019
Start Time: 12:00 pm
End Time: 6:00 pm

**Carnival Update 7 June 2019**

We’re so excited to welcome you to the Harpenden Carnival! There have been a few adjustments to the site plan due to forecasted winds, but the rest of the forecast from midday onwards looks pretty good. The activities planned for the High Street will now take place on the Common instead. The procession is still starting at 12pm from Lydekker Park, all performances are still scheduled to take place and there are still lots of fun and free activities to get involved in! We’ll see you tomorrow for motorcycle stunt shows, crazy golf, musical performances, Showtime Circus, ferret racing, a dog show, and more. Sadly the inflatables vendor is not able to set up due to safety reasons, but trampolines will take their place.

It has all been organised by Harpenden Town Council and the Harpenden Round Table.

Harpenden Mayor Cllr Brian Ellis said: "The Harpenden Carnival is a wonderful summer tradition and the Harpenden Town Council is excited to continue our partnership with Harpenden Round Table to bring this fantastic community event to Harpenden."

A full programme for the event will be available at in June.

Carnival events will take place on the Common until 6pm.
