Merchant City Festival Carnival Procession

About Merchant City Festival Carnival Procession

A vibrant feast of music, dance and street performance the colourful celebration and hundreds of revellers, will make its way through the city streets taking in the Festival 2018 sites and finishing at Go Live! At the Green.

The procession will be the culmination of months of work developed with community groups, schools and artists from the four corners of Glasgow and beyond who have been exploring and celebrating our Shared Differences.

This year we also celebrate our European Championships connection with Berlin, with a special exchange with artists working on the city’s Karneval der Kulturen

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Merchant City Festival Carnival Procession are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
