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!  We are very excited to be able to hold a carnival procession through St Ives Town this year.  The rest of the event will be held at Hill Rise Park. Bring your family and friends, we can’t wait to see you there!  

Last year we made the news!

OMGosh yesterday was a STONKING day! Thank you so much to EVERYONE involved in the organisation of the weekend. So80s and Ozone Breakdown were amazing 🤩

Brilliant event we’ll done!!! First time – walked up on Sunday to see what it was about stayed until the end. Definitely come back again next year …..

Really incredible for a free event. Only lived in the area for a year or so, so first time coming but a really well put on event. Congratulations to everyone, some local councils could learn a thing or two!

It was an amazing weekend. Thank you so much! We’re looking forward to next year 😃

Such a brilliant event! Thanks for having us! We loved performing our musical theatre faves (and enjoying a Pimms in the sunshine!)
