St Pauls Carnival

St Pauls Carnival is an iconic Bristol event that represents the best of African Caribbean culture, as well as the diversity, creativity and vibrancy of its home city, Bristol.

At the heart of carnival is our masquerade procession where the most vibrant colours of carnival are matched by big sound-system sounds. Floats are put on by local schools, community groups and visiting troupes to showcase the best in carnival culture. Wandering down the streets of St Pauls you’ll discover new tastes, sounds, dances and friends in an event that brings communities together through a celebration of unity. Professional performers on main stages, homegrown talent on a neighbouring street, freshly cooked food at trader stalls. This carnival is put on by the community, for the community and everyone who wants to celebrate with it!
