Yes, 8 days of the Best in spectacular music, games, competitions and enjoyment for all the family.
Every year Swanage Carnival is the ultimate Family Fun Festival and Procession Sunday kicks it off in great style, with a 2.5 mile route winding its way along the scenic seafront and town centre, flanked by thousands of spectators. Music plays a major part, with six bands performing a great mix of drums and pipes, rock, samba, soca and jazz.
As well as the ever popular Rampage, this
year we welcome back another costumed
‘Mas Band’ Masquerade 2000 or M2K as they are affectionately known. The
dancing and costumes created by these
two groups provide a vibrant and colourful
spectacle. The cleverly crafted themed
tableaux along with clowns and costumed
walkers make this Carnival, a ‘Must See’
Prior to the Procession, along the seafront,the crowds are entertained with a parade of Beach Buggies, Motorbikes, Carnival Bands and Clowns. On the Carnival Showground, overlooking the magnificent bay, there is more entertainment; sideshows and amusements, a variety of food outlets and the ‘Carnival Arms’ in the marquee or the ever- popular ‘Pimm’s, Prosecco & Gin Bar’ where you can enjoy a refreshing drink.
There's Something for Everyone at this
