It was first held as a small local event in 1977 to celebrate the Queens Silver Jubilee and has carried on getting bigger and better with each passing year and now hosts between 3000 & 5000 visitors.
It is organised each year by the Arbury Carnival Committee, primarily run by a group of volunteers.
It includes a procession, Arena entertainment, a children’s area, product and variety of food stalls. Some years we have evening entertainment ” Arbury Pop in the Park” featuring local groups.
The Carnival is supported by Kettles Yard, Cambridge, who work with local community groups and schools on art Art projects, to include making their costumes, props for the carnival.
Local singing and dance groups are most welcome to take part in the Procession and in the Arena Entertainment.
