St Pauls Carnival, a day of music, dancing & community: Saturday 7th July

This Saturday it will be St Pauls Carnival, a day of music, dancing and community, celebrating Afro-Caribbean culture.

One of the best-known Bristol events, St Pauls Carnival is all-inclusive and aims to bring generations and communities together through the medium of music, dancing and celebration.

This year’s St Pauls Carnival will be extra special as it will be the 50th anniversary of the festival and the first to take place after a 4-year break.

There will be flamboyant costumes and dazzling floats with dancing, performances and live music at a Masquerade Procession which starts from 12 noon, one of the main features of the carnival.

There will also be many stalls selling delicious food from many cultures, plus 17 different stages and sound systems in neighbouring streets, all adding to the celebratory atmosphere and vibe.

St Pauls Carnival is free and takes place in the BS2 area of Bristol on Saturday 7th July, 12 noon – 10pm.
