Our vision is to create and coordinate Sheffield Carnival, a free, family friendly event with vibrant costumes, a street parade, music, food and cultural activities which reflect the diverse range of international cultures within the city.
And…we are very excited to announce that Sheffield Carnival is launching at the Sheffield Fayre, taking place at Norfolk Heritage Park, on Monday 28th August 2017!
The event will run alongside the Sheffield Fayre and will consist of a parade made up of children and people from the local community who will display their carnival costumes in the “Sheffield Shines” parade.
The Carnival spirit has been missing from Sheffield for over 20 years and we are bringing it back with a bang, in a free event that is fun for all the family!
Attractions on the day include vibrant costumes, a parade, stalls, food, music, performances from local talent, children’s rides, crafts, interactive cultural workshops and more…
Sheffield Fayre is in its 16th successful year and we are so excited to be partnering with them to add a splash of Carnival…you can expect this to be a summer event to remember!
The “Sheffield Shines” parade aims to celebrate everything Sheffield, the history, culture and heritage of Sheffield, what makes Sheffield unique and to showcase and celebrate the many cultures that reside in Sheffield.
The theme for our very first carnival will be “Sheffield in Bloom”, this includes flowers, plants, bugs and more…
If you’re interested in helping by becoming a volunteer, an artist or would like to take part in the parade please visit our ‘Get Involved‘ page to find out how you could be a part of this.
