Get Ready For……

St. Ives Carnival and Music Festival 

The  St. Ives Carnival and Music Festival is back again, with a new committee and a magical schedule of events that will deliver a three-day celebration of film, fun, music and community. This year we are committed to delivering more fun than ever, but in a responsible and sustainable way, so we are doing all we can to reduce the negative impact on both our environment and your wallets! 

As part of this and owing to a lack of commitment and funds, we are sadly not able to hold a carnival procession this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t come along and get involved.

The event will be held at Hill Rise Park. Bring your family and friends, we can’t wait to see you there!
