Together – Let’s keep the Carnival Thriving

Watchet Carnival isn’t just about the Parade and Fayre, it’s also about a whole host of fun community events we put on throughout the year. Be it Christmas Eve visits from Santa Claus, tasty homemade sweet and savoury fundraisers, a coffee morning, wheelbarrow race, “afternoon tea”, or the Carnival Queen competition, there is something for everyone. All money raised from these events help us to donate to good causes and keep going and growing.  We very much appreciate your continuing support and kindness. Check out our upcoming events below.
