HISTORY

Huddersfield Carnival is the second largest African-Caribbean Carnival in West Yorkshire and is larger then some of the North’s major cities’ Carnivals. Our Carnival is always held on the second weekend in July thus not competing with other major events on the carnival calendar it pulls in Carnival goers from all over the country and the world and serves a local African-Caribbean population numbering 16,000 - which is one of the largest in the region. Now entering its 26th year the event is a well established part of many people’s summers and this year’s attendance is expected to reach 30,000.

Drawing inspiration from the Caribbean, the Carnival provides a medium through which local communities can develop and display their talents in costume design, music, dance and drama.

The organisers are community volunteers who give their time year after year to ensure Carnival is a success.
