Description: Shaftesbury Carnival is an annual event that has become part of Shaftesbury's history. This year will be the 143rd Carnival, a great achievement that involves hundreds of people to make it such a great success. A lot of people give their time voluntarily including people driving courtesy cars for our Mayor and retiring royal family, collecting vehicles who turn out year after year, the many marshals that walk miles back and forth, the owners of the land at our assembly areas, who are always most helpful and of course, our sponsors for their continued financial support, without which the Carnival could not survive. There are more too numerous to mention, so thank you, thank you, thank you all.
Carnival Day. 9am onwards tombola, lucky tickets etc at the Town Hall. Also pick up point for collecting tins & buckets.
3pm Afternoon Procession
6.15pm Band Parade, Parade of Classic Cars from Can-Am Car Club
