Together – Let’s keep the Carnival Thriving

Watchet Carnival isn’t just about the Parade and Fete, it’s also about a whole host of fun community events we put on throughout the year. Be it visits from Santa Claus, a coffee morning fundraiser, 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.
