Devizes Carnival 2021 – ‘Go Wild’

This is an exceptional year like no other, we call upon the community to come together to make this the biggest celebration of community togetherness for everyone after a very difficult period.

We have postponed the Carnival to what we hope is a safe date, this will enable us time to work with you and our local schools to make this Carnival really special.

The theme this year is ‘Go Wild’ – which we will need to do when we get to October after so much time in isolation!

We have an exciting lead float being built by ‘And Now’ who will be creating an Ark. We are looking for walking entries to follow the Ark in two’s as is traditional – it can be anything – 2 disco dancers, 2 sumo wrestlers – it’s up to you. Why not join in; you’ve plenty of time to get your costumes together. Please complete an entry form so we know who is going to join the section. Visit our website to do so:

While you are at home looking forward to the end of this crisis why not put you time to good use and make a costume, if you don’t want to participate in the parade why not collect materials for schools to use or make some elements that we can incorporate in our costume making. We will post links to tutorials and further information on this event page.

We are very grateful for investment from Arts Council England and Devizes Town Council which allow Carnival to happen and to Devizes Area Board who have supported us to deliver workshops to local schools and community groups.
