Swanage Carnival

Swanage Carnival is the premier Carnival on the south coast.   Self funded and run solely by volunteers, Swanage Carnival is 8 days of fun filled entertainment.

With more than 100 different events there is something for everyone, including air displays, live music, sporting events, games, competitions, three magnificent firework displays and not forgetting one of the longest Carnival processions.

All profits go to our chosen charities and good causes.  Last year we donated over £28,000 to our selected organisations and we hope that with your help we can give away even more this year.

Full details of each year’s events are included in our souvenir Carnival programme.  Copies are available from local shops and online through our website.
