History

Thornbury’s first carnival took place in 1935 as part of the official celebrations of King George V’s Silver Jubilee.

For many years, the event featured a parade along the High Street followed by entertainment on the Mundy Playing Fields. In recent years, the format of the event has changed to a two-day community music festival; however, Thornbury Carnival remains a much-loved event and one of the social highlights of the town’s summer calendar, regularly attracting thousands of people from Thornbury and the surrounding area.
