Leicester Caribbean Carnival, which was first held in 1985, has grown into one of the biggest events of its kind in the UK.
It has grown to become one of UK’s biggest and most popular carnivals. An estimated 100,000 people lined the route of the carnival parade. We turn the city into an island party, celebrating a mix of cultures and encouraging diversity.
Leicester Carnival is the perfect mixture of awesome costumes, a blend of tropical rhythms, tasty food, and brilliantly orchestrated floats parading the city celebrating culture.
Help annually on the first Saturday of August, each year we bring a different cultural theme to the city celebrating different cultures and displaying through the beautiful streets of the city centre in Leicester where our parade takes the brilliant vibe to Victoria Park where the tropical party continues, with a host of events happening.
We have music stages, sound systems, workshops, food stalls, a fun fair, and much more, enjoy a brilliant day in Leicester.
Ensure to experience the Leicester Carnival, the best way is to take part in it, or you can choose to visit and enjoy the experience, whichever, the choice is yours. Be prepared to be amazed
