It’s so simple to join and we want schools, charities, community groups, businesses …… anyone and everyone! Join the procession, have a stall in the park, perform on the stage!

The Main Stage will feature local artists performing a wide variety of music providing a great source of entertainment throughout the day.

Andover Carnival is a not for profit organization of volunteers who enjoy putting the fun back into fundraising.

The Andover Carnival adopts two charities each year to benefit from the money raised on Carnival Day.

Carnival Day 2022 will be on Sunday 17th July at our usual venue, Vigo Recreation Ground, a fun-packed day from 12 noon until 9pm.

Last time we provided a larger stage and we will be searching for local artists and groups to perform a variety of acts. To ensure the whole family can have a great time there will be rides/stalls, along with arts and crafts, charity stalls, a beer tent and a wide variety of food and drinks stalls.

In addition to the Fun Day, our 9th Road Procession for floats and walking groups will be entertaining the watching crowds, moving off at 4 p.m. It’s not too early to start thinking about entering and trying to win a prize. Lorries and drivers are supplied for floats, you just have to use your imagination!

For 2022 we have great new prizes for the procession! Read about our generous sponsors here
