A special and celebratory event in Watchet’s community calendar. So come along and JOIN IN THE FUN.

WATCHET CARNIVAL brings vibrancy, colour, energy, dance, music and lively entertainment  – a most enjoyable, fun and BIG community spirited event. Don’t miss it!  Seeing smiley happy faces enjoying themselves is the aim of the day.

Be a “carnival maker”. It’s a wonderful fun experience. Entries are now invited for Watchet Carnival Procession on Saturday 27th July 2019.  It’s easy – simply complete an entry form.

All welcome to wear fancy dress, not just those in the parade. Spectator participation makes it even better.

Get involved, participate, support, appreciate the effort and hard work of parade entries – clap, cheer, enjoy.

Please bring your camera along and help capture the Carnival experience so we can all share those happy moments. We would love any photos or video clips you have of the day to post and share.

THE CARNIVAL PARADE will start at 6.00 p.m. from Knights Templar School and follow the procession route into town.

WITH SAFETY IN MIND AT ALL TIMES – There will be some road closures – details will be advised nearer the time. We want to minimise any disruption so will do our best to re-open roads as soon as safely possible once the procession has moved through each section of the Carnival Route.

We apologise for any inconvenience and THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION.

Following the Parade, there will be a spectacular aerial stunt display, award presentation, more entertainment on The Esplanade and in numerous pubs and clubs around the town.
