• Bakewell Carnival is the BIGGEST and BEST Carnival in the North of England.

    Last year saw many thousands of locals and visitors from all over the country, thronging the sun drenched streets of this beautiful and historic market town to watch the enormous Carnival Procession.

    2019 is shaping up to be even bigger and better with more than a week of events running from Saturday 29th June to Sunday 6th July and providing something for everyone. 

    There are great events running throughout the week, Everyone involved with the Carnival Committee hope you will join us and take part in Derbyshire's Premier Carnival here in beautiful Bakewell.

    Our Carnival Queen and her entourage are looking forward to give you a special wave when they see you and when you buy a programme, or put some money in one of our tins you can be happy to know that everything you donate will be going to local charities as always.

    Best wishes and thanks for visiting Bakewell.  

    Denis Mooney, 
    Chairman,  Bakewell Carnival Committee.
