Back on the road

After three long years, the Cowley Road Carnival team are thrilled to announce Carnival is back on the road so get ready to party on Sunday 9th July 2023. Theme: ‘Our Nature Our Future’.

This uniquely colourful and vibrant community event will be back on the streets with plans that include the iconic Cowley Road procession, Eco Floats, Street Parties and House Floats introduced in 2021 (first of their kind). There will also be workshops for individuals and community groups to make their own Carnival costumes and the opportunity to take part in the procession.

Zaheer Qureshi who has been a Board member for many years commented: “Since its inception, working with its stakeholders, this Carnival has always been a key catalyst for building bridges between community, schools, youth services, cultural and disability groups.”  Board member Sarah Conor added “To locals, the 3-year absence left a social, celebratory and creative hole in Oxford which can’t wait to fill next year.”

Get Involved

The management is encouraging those interested to get involved in various ways such as join the procession, perform, run a stall, volunteer, assist in social media, join the Board or become a sponsor.
