Swanage Carnival

Once every year at the start of August Swanage comes alive as the carnival comes to town.

The week long event begins on Saturday night with a large firework display followed by the procession of decorated floats and bands on Sunday afternoon.

The grand finale is on the following Saturday with a massive fireworks display and music from the local bands playing throughout the evening.

We regret that we are not allowed to publish the events during carnival week and they are not available online on the carnival website.

You can buy the carnival brochure from newsagents in Swanage which lists all the events during carnival week in Swanage.
