About Opening Carnival Street Party

Taking inspiration from the baroque delights of the Venice carnival, expect beautiful masks, gorgeous costumes, and pirouettes of colour! Come as fancy as you dare, and strike a pose.

After the street party join the party in Merchant Square from 7.30pm for some live music and choreographed dancing.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Opening Carnival Street Party are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
