People in the Thornbury Carnival parade

General Information

Thornbury Carnvial usually takes place on the first Saturday in July.  Each year the Carnival has a different theme and visitors are encouraged to participate and dress accordingly.

The Parade along the High Street usually features marching bands, adult and child walking/dancing groups, American cars, vintage cars, military vehicles, tractors and for the last two years we’ve had a traction engine and horses.

Once the Parade is over, the Carnival moves to Mundy Park where activities run throughout the afternoon and early evening including a main stage, a community stage, an arena, a fun fair, Weston donkeys, free children’s activities, a variety of stalls, a selection of food traders and two fully licenced bars.  There really is something for all the family!
