Unfortunately we have had to make the decision to cancel our 10 year Carnival Parade event this year.

We will be instead doing a bigger and better 10 year celebration on the 10TH JULY 2021. We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you all next year

Stay safe

Canvey Island Carnival Association


Welcome to the Canvey Island Carnival website, we are glad you could join us.  The 2020 Canvey Island Carnival Parade and Festival will take place on Saturday 11th July 2020 and we would love you to be part of our TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY! 


The Carnival has two objectives. First and foremost it’s about Charity. Every penny we get from the street collection is donated to local charity and Island based projects and organisations. We have raised more than £19,500 over the last 10 years.  Please click on Charity Donations to find out how last year’s collection was donated and who has benefitted in past years.

The second part is about you, the Community.  We want to bring to the residents and visitors to the Island, a fun and memorable day that everyone, no matter what their age, can enjoy and be a part of, whether that’s making an entry into the parade, volunteering help as a marshal or perhaps you have a talent you’d like to showcase at the festival or you prefer to support us as an onlooker enjoying the fun and festivities offered.  Whatever your participation we welcome you.  You’ll find information on how to make an entry into the parade, book a stall at the festival or enter our talent arena from the menu above.

To help defray the costs associated with carnival we will be holding other events throughout the year to raise additional funds.  The next event will be our quiz night on 15th February 2019. Click on Events for more details.

So please, do take a good look around our website and if you can’t find the answer to your question just click on the “contact us” option and we will get back to you.

We do hope that you will support us and look forward to seeing you at one of our events and on Carnival Day.
