Due to the uncertainty of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Isle of Wight Carnival Federation are announcing that the following carnivals have decided, for the safety and wellbeing of our communities, to cancel their Summer Carnival Processions for 2021:

  • Cowes
  • Newport
  • Shanklin
  • Ventnor
  • St Helens
  • Sandown
  • West Wight (Parade)

Despite having no summer Carnival Processions in 2021, each carnival association may plan to hold smaller local events depending on restrictions at the time.

We will be back, making 2022, a Celebration Carnival Season.
