Kick off the Isle of Wight Carnival Season with Newport Carnival!

Main Procession

WOW! Thank you...

What an incredible turn out to our 100th birthday carnival celebrations in Newport! 

Thank you to each and every one of you who participated, observed and donated to the carnival. 

We hope to see you all at our Illuminated procession on Thursday 25th August 2022.

Celebrate Newport Carnival’s 100th birthday at our Main Carnival Procession on Saturday 23rd July 2022.

There will be a number of events throughout the day around Newport including the world-famous TITAN the ROBOT as seen on Britain’s Got Tallent this year!

You may have seen TITAN on the Isle of Wight in the past, at other events such as The Garlic Festival in August.

There will be a vehicle-only parade which will be setting off from South Street shortly before the main procession, which starts at 19:00.

Newport Main Carnival will be the biggest carnival Newport has seen in decades, if not, ever!

The team are working tirelessly behind the scenes to put on a spectacular display – we are inviting anyone who wishes to take part, to do so!


Shademakers, who performed at the Queen’s Jubilee Pageant, will be taking part with their 250-member group including the now world-famous, Ventnor Comic Jazz Band!

You can watch a clip of Shademakers and Ventnor Comic Jazz Band below!

If you only attend one carnival this year, you best make sure Newport Main is the one! There will not be one this big again… well, we don’t think anyway!

See you all on Saturday 23rd July – We suggest you arrive by 18:30 and find somewhere along the route to watch this procession.

We anticipate that the carnival will prove popular so finding a good vantage point is wise.

South Street and High Street are genuinely popular, however, further out along Trafalgar Road and the Mall can be a little quieter.

There will also be an illuminated procession which takes place on Thursday 25th August, not so big but still going to be one to watch if you can make it!

  More details on the event:  The parade route map can be found here.
