Market Harborough Carnival

The Market Harborough Carnival – Where Every Moment is a Memory in the Making!

🎉🍔 Step right up and step into history, as the Market Harborough Carnival – your favorite annual neighborhood extravaganza – pirouettes into town on Saturday 8th June!

Kick off your summer with a bang as we parade down the streets with a float procession that’s so vibrant, you might need sunglasses! Watch the town transform into a living tapestry of joy, ending in a crescendo of color and community at the glorious Symington Recreational Ground.


Over 90 stalls await, brimming with delicacies to delight your taste buds, games that’ll challenge your chuckle-muscles, and local businesses showcasing their wonders.


The main stage promises a symphony of local talent that’ll have you clapping, toe-tapping, and hip-swaying without a care in the world. And that’s just the start! With a friendly football tournament to spark your competitive spirit, and the epic Carnival 10K Run to get your adrenaline surging, there’s something to get everyone’s heart racing.


As the sun plays peekaboo, prepare for an epic finale, with live music serenading the sunset until 9 pm – it’s a melody of memories that you’ll hum for weeks. And the cherry on top? Our headliner at 5 pm is going to send the energy soaring like a skyrocket!


2024’s carnival kicks into gear at 10:00 am with the 10K run followed by the parade which starts at 11:30 prompt
