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 next year’s Carnival, and it’s going to be a good one.
And this year, as in 2023, visiting the Carnival is free!
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.

From Friday evening till Sunday afternoon, the Recreation Ground (the Rec) will feature a variety of music acts and sideshows and displays, a range of craft and charity stalls, and plenty of food and drink stalls too. And the ever-popular Stocks Funfair will also be on the Rec for Carnival weekend.
Meet Our 2023 Sponsors
The Stowmarket Carnival is run by a team of unpaid volunteers, and relies heavily on sponsorship and donations of both money and services. Do you run a local business? Your support for this free family event will be very welcome.
