Event Details
Bishop's Stortford Town Council welcomes the annual Carnival Parade and Fun Day on 18 June 2022.

The Council's first event since coronavirus pandemic sees the Parade and the Fun Day return to Bishop’s Stortford. This year’s theme is 'Royal' celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The Carnival Parade departs from South Mill Arts (CM23 3JG) at 12.30pm, processes through South Street, Potter Street, Market Square, North Street and Northgate End, finishing on Link Road at approximately 1.20pm. The Parade will be led by London fanfare trumpets playing British classics along the route. Fanfares have been performed for innumerable historic British ceremonies such as the wedding of Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth II of England) and Prince Phillip in November 1947.

The Carnival Fun Day on Sworders Field (CM23 2EL) is from 12pm – 5pm; visit over 100 stalls at the Fun Day including a bar as well as delicious food from around the world. The Lowestoft Dog Display Team will wow crowds as the dogs and their handlers navigate around the specially designed course to music. Cinderella and Prince Charming will also be making an appearance from 2pm! Music and dance from talented local performers will be on show at the Bandstand Arena. Be sure to visit The Carnival Cruise, a special array of decorated working and pleasure boats, moored along the river between the Register Office (CM23 2DL) and Station Road.

The whole event promises to be a fantastic experience for all the family.
