Stowmarket Carnival

12th, 13th & 14th July 2024

Stowmarket Carnival is a wonderful family event, providing affordable fun and entertainment for local families. We are busy preparing for Carnival 2024, and it’s going to be a good one.
And just like last year, visiting the Carnival is free!

Stowmarket Carnival

Carnival Procession

The all-important Carnival Procession will take place on the Saturday, led by the Carnival Court, with floats, walkers, dancers, singers, and fancy dress galore.

Our theme for 2024 is “Decades”, so from William the Conqueror to the present day, there’s lots to choose from!

The Procession will leave the Meadlands roundabout around midday on Saturday 13th, going westward through Combs Ford and the town arriving at the Recreation Ground around 2pm.  Further details will be available nearer the day.

Enjoy your Stowmarket Carnival – fun for all the family!

Seeing 1000’s of people coming out of their houses and coming together as a community enjoying the whole weekend together with friends and strangers.

Robert Cunningham


A great opportunity to celebrate Stowmarket, meet new people and to be a royal for a period. It is a great event which makes people happier when watching and it shows the outcome of work done by a group of hard working Carnival team. Also it can show off what’s going on in Stowmarket too.
