The Parade starts @ 11:30 on Burnmill Road and will parade along closed roads through the town, along Coventry Road, East Farndon Road, Welland Park Road, Northampton Road and then finish on St Mary’s Road at the showground entrance.

We have 26 floats available, so if you are interested, then you need to get your name down sharpish!

the parade theme


In line with kicking off the Big Green Week for Market Harborough, we are turning the Carnival Green!

This could mean your float is a representation of recycling, the planet, the Incredible Hulk… You choose…

Whatever it is, then you need to get your thinking caps on and submit your top three choices to Sarah & Caroline at by 31 January 2023.

We’ll then confirm your moment by 13 February. This is to ensure that we don’t receive any duplicates.

Then get decorating!

We’ll be decorating on the Friday evening before the Carnival at Sandersons on The Riverside Industrial Estate, this time we’re making it more of a party, and getting into the Carnival spirit early! Food and drink will be on offer, so why not bring everyone down to help you!


We will be using the same voting system as last year, where we will have manned sealed containers where people can vote using coins. The winner will be the one with the MOST coins, NOT the value. Where there is a tie, the value will be taken into account.
