WELCOME TO

Newport Carnival!

The Isle of Wight comes alive at the thought of carnivals and what a great way to kick off the carnival season with making your way to Newport Carnival.

Traditionally, Newport has been the first carnival of the summer carnival season, with the first procession being at the end of July, normally around the time Schools break up for their summer holidays.

It’s not just the one procession that takes place here in Newport, there is also another, Illuminated procession that fills the central town of the Island with colour and light.

Throughout the year, Newport Carnival hosts other events such as their popular Christmas Parade that cascades around the town, before finishing in the square ready for the Grand Christmas Lights Switch On.
