Ross-on-Wye Carnival

4th August 2018


The Ross-on-Wye Carnival has been held on the first Saturday in August every year since 1977, making it the town’s oldest community tradition.

The carnival is organised by a team of local volunteers and the event is supported by many of Ross-on-Wye’s businesses and charities.

Every year the annual procession makes its way around the town’s centre, showing off a magnificent display of floats and fancy dress.  Anyone can take part in the carnival, with some great prizes up for grab.  

The procession ends at the Ropewalk where you will find plenty of great entertainment including a fun fair, many different stalls and a wide range of food and drink.

In the run-up to the carnival, we organise a selection of competitions including a colouring-in contest, and the family favourite ‘Odd Object’.
