About the

Market Harborough Carnival

The Market Harborough Carnival is a community event which traditionally takes place on the second Saturday in June.

The event begins with a float procession through the town, ending at Symington Recreational Ground. There are over 90 stalls with food, drink, games and other local businesses offering things for sale.

There’s a main stage with local acts appearing throughout the day, as well as a football tournament, and our very own Carnival 10K Run.

In 2023, the action kicks off from 10:00 and ends at 9pm with live music from the main stage throughout the day and our headline act from 5pm.

We are a 100% self funded event and rely on sponsorship and volunteers, if you feel you would like to sponsor us or help out please contact us.
