FAQ

Stalls

What time does the Carnival start and finish?
The Carnival starts at 11am and goes on until 5pm.  The Carnival Procession usually arrives on site about 12.30pm.
 
How many visitors do you have at the Arbury Carnival? 
3,000 to 5,000

Do you have any spaces left?
There are about 90 spaces on the field and these slots are allocate on a strictly first-come-first-served basis. To discourage people leaving bookings to the last minute we have offer a discount to people who book their stalls early. See the booking form for details!

So long as there is no "Full up" message under News we have spaces.

However we only have a set number of spaces (generally 5) for large scale catering operations and we won't accept two of the same type. We already have a local supplier for Ice Cream vans so please don't send a form, it will just be returned to you. 

What time should I arrive to setup my stall?
There will be people on the green from around 8am on the Saturday. 

How can I find out where my pitch is? (Before the Carnival)
We usually mark out the pitches on the Wednesday before the Carnival and while the general layout is pretty similar year after year the actual numbers can vary quite a bit depending on where we start and whether or not we have any new "features" we are trying out. After we have marked out the pitches then they are allocated to stalls, this usually takes place on the Thursday before the Carnival. 

Anytime from the Friday onwards the pitch allocated to the stall will be available, just contact stalls@arburycarnival.org and we can let you know (or call the Community Centre).

How can I find out where my pitch is? (On the Day)
On the Saturday morning when you arrive on site just speak to any of the Carnival organisers (we are in bright red tops) and we will be able to tell you where your pitch is.

Are their any restrictions on stall types?
We don't generally exercise any control over what you do on your stall (so long as it's legal!) but there are some exceptions. At the request of the police we don't allow BB Guns. On the booking form please make it clear any special requirements that you may have e.g. bringing a gazebo, parking space etc
 
Rubbish
All stall holders are responsible for removing all rubbish from their stall.  Large rubbish bins are available.
