Hereford River Carnival

This August bank holiday Hereford’s largest, free community event returns with a splash promising more fun, feel-good vibes and entertainment than ever before.

Castle Green, Bishops Meadow, King George V Playing Fields and all along the riverbank will be bubbling with excitement.

The event will launch at dusk on Friday 25 August with a spectacular live performance along and on the river.  Saturday is carnival day and will be ‘a day at the seaside’ as we create Hereford-on-Sea. The legendary carnival procession will flood the streets with people and bring everyone to the river to watch the river procession.

Alongside the well-loved highlights like the fun fair, indie food village, craft workshops, traditional games, festival of sport and music stages there will be many new areas & activities across the site.

There will be lots of opportunities to get involved in free carnival workshops and activities over the Easter & summer holidays.
