Margate Carnival

Margate Carnival, a jewel in the cultural landscape of Kent, is an annual extravaganza that brings the Margate community and beyond together in a vivid celebration of artistry and unity. 


As we continue our journey, each year is a leap towards greater inclusivity, diversity, and artistic ambition, ensuring that the carnival remains a vibrant, evolving canvas that reflects the rich tapestry of our community. 


This celebration is more than just a parade; it's a platform for over 1,200 creative practitioners and participants to showcase their talents, from dazzling costumes and spirited dances to dynamic music performances that resonate with the soul of Margate. 


Our local arts partnerships with Turner Contemporary and Dreamland enriches this kaleidoscopic event, enhancing access and inclusivity for a 'whole family' experience. 


Margate Carnival is a testament to the power of creativity in fostering community engagement and pride. By embracing the contributions of diverse cultures and backgrounds, we ensure that the carnival is a reflection of the community’s collective spirit, inviting everyone to partake in the joyous celebration. 


Join us as we continue to celebrate the creative, cultural country we are, making Margate Carnival a beacon of artistic excellence and community unity.
